This chapter discusses the two wings of one generation, the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and Young Americans for Freedom (YAF)—their relationships, their tensions, their compatibilities, their fates. It examines the problem of generations, as well as such related themes as political identity, gender, and convergence. The chapter also illustrates the inextricable bonds between activists of the left and the right as they tried to shape the country's future.
