Inhaltsangabe: Alan Wald and Dan Georgakas wrote the introduction and afterword for this unrepentant memoir and essays challenging standard perceptions of the radical movements of the sixties and seventies.
Klappentext: "If there ever was a time for more lawyers like Mike Smith, it is now. I hope that this fine book reaches and inspires lawyers and law students to emulate him. The country would be better by far for it."-William Kunstler
"Radical Madison (and socialist-leaning Wisconsin) have inspired many tales, and Michael Steven Smith's is one of the best. We see him as a Milwaukee-born, middle class Jewish free spirit of the 1950s, smitten by jazz and Lenny Bruce; then again as Madisonian resister to campus military training and anti-war activist. He rambled elsewhere later on, but Wisconsin dissenters (like me) will always be glad to claim him."-Paul Buhle, editor, Encyclopedia of the American Left
"I like Michael Smith and I like this book. He shares the warmth and intimacy of this family life, bears his soul about this journey through radical politics, confronts the wrenching ironies of his on-the-ground observations of Israel-Palestine relations, revulsion the intrigue and excitement associated with his progressive legal practice, and in the end, he leaves you yearning for more."-Wilhelm Joseph, former Co-Chair and UN Delegate of the National Conference of Black Lawyers
"What is immediately striking about the material Smith has assembled is that it defies many of the stereotyped conceptions of the 1960s. His writings raise the question of how that history is to be 'officially' recorded and who will be the recorder."-Alan Wald, author of The New York Intellectuals
"There is hardly an underground newspaper, black liberation, or left wing group of any kind in Detroit that at one time or another was not represented by the law firm [of Lafferty, Reosti, Jabara, Papahkian, Stickgold, James, Smith and Sobel]."-Lt. Dennis Mulaney, Detroit Police Dept. Red Squad, Inter-Office Memorandum of December 1, 1970.
