Quotes From the Jacket:
"Michael Albert's accomplishments in his life and work have been truly remarkable.... This lively memoir not only adds new dimensions to understanding his own perspective and ideas, but also provides revealing and often surprising insights into the exciting history of the past forty years, the popular movements and the institutional structures that have sought to contain and undermine them, their successes and failures, and the prospects for moving on. It is quite an achievement."
--Noam Chomsky"Remembering Tomorrow is the deeply engaging story of Michael Albert's evolution from frat boy to one of the world's premiere utopian thinkers--not just a tale of the sixties, it'll be just as relevant in the late 21st century."
"Michael Albert is an important thinker who takes us beyond radical denunciations and pretentious analysis to a thoughtful, profound meditation on what a good society can be like."
from the Jacket:
In this candid memoir of the American Left, veteran anticapitalist activist Michael Albert offers a characteristically unadorned personal account of recent American movements to transcend inequality. A uniquely visionary figure, Remembering Tomorrow recounts a life of uncompromising commitment, whether chronicling the battles against the Vietnam War and his own political awakening as a member of SDS or recounting the challenges of creating alternative social models, Albert strikes a balance between resistance and vision. Reflections on the life of a child of the sixties and would be physicist cum radical economist, Albert's story is a lesson in the profound hope that inspires social change.
