This introductory chapter sets out the book’s purpose, which is to trace the history of a particular social movement, the white New Left, from 1965 to May 1970. In tracing this history, the ultimate goal is to uncover the reasons for the New Left’s collapse and defeat. More than any other organization, Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) represented the trajectory of the white New Left and the white student movement of the 1960s. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   social movements, Students for a Democratic Society, SDS
