Street Fighting Years

(1987)
An Autobiography of the Sixties
A non fiction book by

 
One of the world's best-known radicals relives the early years of the protest movement. This new edition features the John Lennon/Yoko Ono interview "Power to the People," published for the first time in the US, and an important new introduction.

Yoko Ono: Let's face it, the Beatles was twentieth-century folksong in the framework of capitalism; they couldn't do anything different if they wanted to communicate within that framework.

John Lennon: Well, I hope they see that rock and roll is not the same as Coca-Cola.


In this new edition of his memoirs, Tariq Ali revisits his formative years as a young radical. It is a story that takes us from Paris and Prague to Hanoi and Bolivia, meeting such figures as Malcolm X, Bertrand Russell, Marlon Brando, Henry Kissinger, and Mick Jagger along the way. In vivid detail, Ali captures the mood and energy of those years as he tracks the growing significance of the nascent protest movement.

This edition includes a new introduction, as well as the famous interview conducted by Tariq Ali and Robin Blackburn with John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1971.
