Abstract only
Log-in for full text

The first part of two chapters that examine adulthood in the activist milieux in the first half of the 1970s, this chapter considers the subjective experience of the new liberation politics in the north London non-aligned left. It addresses key markers of early adult life, including friendship, work, love and family life to explore the impact of the new liberation politics on these experiences. The chapter shows the social and psychic pressures of trying to negotiate prevailing mainstream social norms to conceive radical ways of living and being every day.
