Son of famous sociologists Helen and Robert Lynd, Staughton Lynd was one of the most visible figures of the New Left, a social movement during the 1960s that emphasized participatory democracy. This title presents a study of Lynd's activist career. It traces Lynd's journey into the southern civil rights and anti-Vietnam War movements.

The book concludes with Lynd's move in the 1970s to Niles, Ohio, where he assisted in the struggle to keep the steel mills open and where he works as a labor lawyer today. "The Admirable Radical" is an important contribution to the study of social history and will interest both social and intellectual historians.
