Chapter Summary

As the Radical Caucus in Sociology gathered in Boston on the 25th of August, 1968 the New York Times reported that the National Guard had been mobilized in Chicago and that 250 cargo jets were in waiting, these in advance of the opening of the Democratic National Convention and the anti-war demonstrations that had been prepared for it. Even before Rudi Dutschke, the German radical student leader, popularized an idea now often attributed to Gramsci-the "long march through the institutions ", SDS's Al Haber had written a prospectus called "Radicals in the Professions", and then a much quoted working paper, with Barbara Haber, at a 1967 conference on Radicals in the Professions. This conference was an important linear ancestor of the caucuses, the Sociology Liberation Movement and the NUC.
