In this candid memoir of a political renegade, Michael Albert offers a deeply personal account of recent American movements to transform inequality. A visionary figure, Albert recounts a life of uncompromising commitment—whether chronicling the surge of protests against the Vietnam War and his own political awakening as a member of SDS, or addressing the challenges of creating alternative social models. Reflections on the life of a campus agitator and would-be physicist cum radical economist, Remembering Tomorrow is a study in the profound hope that inspires social change.

“Michael Albert's accomplishments in his life and work have been truly remarkable . . . . This lively memoir . . . provides revealing and often surprising insights into the exciting history of the past forty years, in popular movements and the institutional structures that have sought to contain and undermine them, their success and failures, and the prospects for moving on. It is quite an achievement.”

Remembering Tomorrow is the deeply engaging story of Michael Albert's evolution from frat boy to one of the world's premiere utopian thinkers. Not just a tale of the sixties, it is just as relevant today.”

“| "It is to Michael Albert's everlasting credit that he has worked tirelessly to grapple with the very difficult questions of what a truly democratic economy might look like, and how it might work. Albert's thoughtful contribution deserves wide attention.”
