The Thirty Years' Wars explores the limits of liberalism even as it exposes the fault lines of reaction and offers a clarifying view of the contours of revolutionary aspirations. Pull at one thread and there is the cord that stretches from Johnson to Nixon, from Carter to Reagan to Clinton. Pull at another and there are the hopes of rebels from Chicago to Chiapas. Kopkind never condescends - not to those whom liberals love to call victims, and not to Reagan's children. Nor does he ghettoize his subjects. In the mix we get street-fighting and Woodstock, state terror and Olympic spectacle, Christian soldiers and gay soldiers, blue collars, red banners and some white flags. Life as it is experienced. As a gay man whose theme was always, in one way or another, the contest between freedom and chains, Kopkind well understood that there is no pure realm of the personal. History kicks up fights and carnivals both - you'd best get in it.

Andrew Kopkind eschewed a career as a msinstream journalist to cover the upheaval of the 1960s for the New Republic, New Statesman, The New York Review of Books and Mayday (later Hard Times), a radical newsletter of which he was co-founder. With John Scagliotti, he produced "Lavender Hour," the first gay and lesbian variety programme on American commercial radio. In 1982 he joined the Nation, where he was an associate editor and senior political writer until his death from cancer in 1994.
"The Thirty Years' Wars reveals its author to be not just a great radical journalist but a major repository of that enduring American ideal Walt Whitman called the "Democratic Vista" ... Shifting through the culture around him with infinite patience, Kopkind does precisely what a radical democrat in hard times should: He nudges us towards clarity." - Los Angeles Times "Andrew Kopkind had a great talent for describing the political moods and emotions of the moment. Even now, his old dispatches crackle with the chaotic, breakneck energies of the late 1960s." - New York Times ""Probably no better record exists of these landmark events than the vivid reflections collected in The Thirty Years' Wars."" - Washington Post "one of the clearest, most courageous voices in American radical journalism." - Guardian ""Politically engaged journalism at its best."" - Out ""Shelve this collection next to the best writings of l.F. Stone and H.L Mencken in that great library of books that torment the comfortable."" - Kirkus Reviews
