"Originally published in 1970, Marge Piercy's second novel follows the lives of four teenagers in a near-future society, as they rebel against a military draft and 'the system.' The occupation of Franklin High School begins, and with it the open rebellion of America's youth against their channeled, unrewarding lives and the self-serving, plastic society that directs them. From the disillusionment and alienation of the young at the center of the revolt, to their attempts to build a visionary new society, the nationwide following they gain, and the brutally complete repression that inevitably follows, this is future fiction without a drop of fantasy. As driving, violent, and nuanced today as it was forty years ago, this anniversary edition includes a brand new introduction by the author, reflecting unapologetically on the novel, and the times and life from which it emerged."--from cover, p.
