My Generation: Collective Autobiography And Identity Politics (Wisconsin Studies in Autobiography)
My Generation offers exceptionally perceptive readings of autobiographical works by veterans of the 1960s culture wars, from the annunciatory narrative of the Port Huron Statement to the self-consciously elegiac reflections of such Movement veterans as Tom Hayden and Todd Gitlin.

My Generation offers exceptionally perceptive readings of autobiographical works by veterans of the 1960s culture wars, from the annunciatory narrative of the Port Huron Statement to the self-consciously elegiac reflections of such Movement veterans as Tom Hayden and Todd Gitlin. In the process, John Hazlett convincingly argues that these works constitute a new autobiographical genre intent upon illuminating the collective experience of an entire generation. My Generation deepens our understanding of the sixties and its long aftermath.Paul Boyer, Merle Curti Professor of History, University of WisconsinMadison John Hazletts engaging and insightful study of writers from the 1960s demonstrates for the first time the ways in which the idea of the generation has affected autobiographical writing in this century. Exchanging I for we, autobiographers from the sixties claim to speak on behalf of all members of their generation. However, the extent to which each perspective accurately represents that generations beliefs, values, and goals will continually be contested by competing texts and narratives. Writers whose work is addressed in My Generation include Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Tom Hayden, Michael Rossman, Dotson Rader, Raymond Mungo, Jane Alpert, John Bunzel, Peter Collier, David Horowitz, Joyce Maynard, David Harris, and Todd Gitlin. As Hazlett discovered, the stories these writers present are not simply straightforward accounts; instead, each is constructed with a specific political and personal agenda in an effort to define the generations identity and the writers own.
