Whatever happened to those radical boomer activists from the '60s and '70s?


"...Katsiaficas became an ardent protester, spurred both by his work on the panel and the death of a lacrosse teammate, Paul Baker, who’d joined the Marines and was killed in Quang Tri. Katsiaficas missed his graduation while serving a 45-day sentence at the Middlesex House of Correction in Billerica for “disturbing a school.” In graduate school at the University of California at San Diego, he studied with radical Marxist Herbert Marcuse, then came back to Boston to teach social science at the Wentworth Institute of Technology, publishing more than a dozen books on leftist politics.

Girl Gangs, Biker Boys, and Real Cool Cats in Booklist

In the final chapter, they demonstrate the important role pulpy teen novels played in the rise of today’s YA juggernaut. The lurid, lewd, hilarious, awful, and awesome book-cover reproductions are an obvious draw, but there’s scholarship here, too. A highlight for fans of low culture..."—Keir Graff, Booklist
