Overstated Radicals

(p.132) Chapter 7 Overstated Radicals
The politics of betrayal

Ashley Lavelle

Manchester University Press

The radical and renegade may not always be the indivisible species they first appear to be. A closer inspection of the radical's politics can reveal important continuities through the years, or at least flaws in their politics that could conceivably explain their affinity with conservatism, if not their apostasy. In other cases perhaps the radicalism of the individual in question is simply overstated. This chapter discusses the connection between renegacy and flawed radical politics among sixties activists.
