Co-conspirator for Justice

The prologue situates Alan Berkman as an unexpected American revolutionary. Raised in the 1950s and 1960s in small town upstate New York during the Cold War and as part of the first generation of post-Holocaust American Jews, Berkman was focused on doing his parents proud. The author grew up with him, went to his bar mitzvah, and joined him at Cornell for college. But then their paths diverged as Berkman was focused on medical school while the author saw her future in radical politics. The chapter summarizes the arguments of the book and lays out the path of Berkman’s increasingly revolutionary stances.
