(1919- ) US painter and author in whose Near Future novel, The Movement (1969), grimly extrapolates late-1960s-style confrontations between US students and police into the takeover of a vast university campus and retaliatory bombing by the government; the coherence of the student movement is exaggerated, but the computer- and bureaucracy-dominated world they hope to change is verisimilar for the time of writing.
