Immagini colte sul vivo, a poche ore dagli avvenimenti, con un deliberato rifiuto di meditazioni e di citazioni pedanti. Un saggio completo e chiaro che fa il punto della situazione su quello che fu il movimento giovanile negli united states negli anni anteriori al mitico Sessantotto e al suo confluire in vero e proprio impegno politico. È l. a. storia di quel grande laboratorio americano in cui si preparavano e andavano maturando le teorie che di lì a poco avrebbero infiammato l'Europa. Il Beat e l'Underground, il teatro che passa dalla Contestazione alla Strumentalizzazione, l. a. vecchia e nuova Sinistra, il problema razziale, il pacifismo e l. a. non-violenza.
