"Leftist culture-vulture and philosopher Eric v.d. Luft takes
us on a season-by-season romp through the pop culture
of that glorious and earth-shattering decade, reliving and
analyzing the music, films, books, TV, and sports. Whether
you actually lived through the era — as I did — or wished
you had, this book will help you understand all the critical
connections between the pop culture of the time and the
history that was being made in Vietnam and in the streets.
Die at the Right Time! will live on my bookshelf as an
indispensable reference."
                          — Mark Rudd, leader of the 1968
                student takeover of Columbia University
The purpose of Die at the Right Time! is not to memorialize
yesterday, but to inspire today and tomorrow. If it helps any
present or future leftists, war resisters, or young visionaries to
avoid past mistakes or to improve on past successes, then it will
have achieved this purpose.

The author, a teacher of philosophy, religion, and history, was a
ten-year-old sixth-grader when President John F. Kennedy was
murdered on November 22, 1963.
Die at the Right Time! is the
story of the cultural, political, aesthetic, and sociological
development he shared nationwide with his rebellious peers from
that point until the early seventies. He remains an unreconstructed,
unrepentant, and uncompromised believer that the best thing he
ever did was to work against the Vietnam War.
Die at the Right
shows the leftist ideals of the sixties as he experienced them.
"In the sixties the cultural front lines were an exhausting place to be.
Sometimes I think I was too close to it all to have an effective overview.
Eric v.d. Luft’s
Die at the Right Time! is a smart, keenly insightful guided
tour of the intricate subtleties and nuances of that explosive period."

                 — Michael Tearson, WXPN DJ, 1967-1970;
                              WMMR Music Director, 1970-1976
