Summary "Making Trouble reclaims 1970s feminism from those who are hell-bent on denying that it ever existed; it shows how politics and everyday life fused in a period where utopian dreams were a reasonable activity and not a sure sign of madness. The book helps us to understand the roots of today's activism and to show what links the eco-warriors of today with their feminist mothers."--BOOK JACKET
