Summary "During the turbulent Sixties, many young Americans became caught up in protest movements demanding significant changes in our society. "Ordinary Radicals" tells the story of Jan Barry, who dreamed of going to West Point and becoming a general, but ended up founding Vietnam Veterans Against the War; of Carol Glassman, whose search for a genuine family led her to join the SDS and help to empower poor residents of Newark, New Jersey; of Harold Hector, who found a way to live up to his father's example of military service by helping men in Boston avoid the draft; of Sheila Collins, whose belief in democracy led her to challenge male dominance in the Protestant church; of David Samas, who defied authority as a boy and then went to prison for refusing orders for Vietnam; of Don Jelinek, whose dreams of becoming a hero like Gary Cooper were fulfilled by his working as civil-rights lawyer in Mississippi; of Susan Griffin, who sought an escape from her family's tumult and deceptiveness in the natural world and literature; and of Nathan Houser, whose boyhood schooling in religion and morality made him choose to flee to Canada instead of being drafted" -- Amazon website
