Never Stop Running is the poignant saga of Allard Lowenstein, one of America's last liberal heroes. The book is both a chronicle of liberalism at the barricades in the 1960s and 1970s and the story of a man desperately seeking peace in his interior life. A leader of student protests against the Vietnam War, he was a principal organizer in the movement that drove Lyndon Johnson from the White House in 1968. Most of all, Lowenstein had the remarkable ability to inspire the people who worked with him; he had a strong effect on hundreds of young peoplemany of whom (like Bill Bradley, Barney Frank, and Bob Kerry) are prominent in public life today. This is the story of an inspiring character in the fight against racism, war, and social injustice..
