This book is set in the late 60's at Berkeley, a time of student protests and conflicts with the police over the Vietnam War. As a work of historical fiction, it explores some of the issues like Vietnam, drug culture, civil rights, rock music, sex, Watergate, and left-wing politics. It tells the story of its protagonist, a student at Berkeley, finding himself, becoming politically aware, and becoming involved in the protests. Berkeley is a prestigious university, and it was a center of student unrest. There is also a great plot about the drug culture and the FBI. In summary, it's an excellent novel with interesting characters and plot. The author grew up and went to school in this era, so he has extensive knowledge of this period in history. I would recommend this book. I myself am too young to have lived through these events, so it's a great work of fiction that also a bit educational as to what really happened.
