In 1964, I was a 17 year freshman from a farm town in the San Joaquin Valley. Insecure and painfully shy, I had managed somehow to get accepted to Berkeley. Before that Fall was over, I was about to get a first-class education in the Bill of Rights, political action, and courage, that involved crawling through a basement window to view an actual underground press at work, picketing to stop union drivers' deliveries to the University, the takeover of the UC administration building, searching for arrested roommates, and hearing Savio's astonishing body-on-the-machine speech first-hand. It changed my life, and fueled my writing career as a librarian reviewer of alternative and small press materials that were so critical during the Free Speech Movement and afterward. Suppression and censorship was the game: the Free Speech Movement its name. This book presents a kalidioscope of perspectives by participants from both sides of the barriers. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0520233549, Paperback)

This is the authoritative and long-awaited volume on Berkeley's celebrated Free Speech Movement (FSM) of 1964. Drawing from the experiences of many movement veterans, this collection of scholarly articles and personal memoirs illuminates in fresh ways one of the most important events in the recent history of American higher education. The contributors--whose perspectives range from that of FSM leader Mario Savio to University of California president Clark Kerr---shed new light on such issues as the origins of the FSM in the civil rights movement, the political tensions within the FSM, the day-to-day dynamics of the protest movement, the role of the Berkeley faculty and its various factions, the 1965 trial of the arrested students, and the virtually unknown "little Free Speech Movement of 1966."
