Steal this book by Abbie Hoffman( Book )

36 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Escrito en 1970, este volumen es un clásico de culto que ejemplifica como ninguno la contracultura de los años sesenta y en particular la visión de los yippies, la rama más politizada del movimiento hippie que inspiró a toda una generación a desafiar el statu quo. El libro está escrito en forma de guía y en ella Hoffman, activista político y social, utilza sus propias actividades y experiencias como inspiración: da consejos a los lectores sobre cómo hacer para vivir fuera de la ley, cultivar marihuana, crear una radio libre, vivir en una comuna, cometer fraudes con tarjetas de crédito y una gran variedad de técnicas de hurto. En sus páginas Hoffman se refería a Estados Unidos como el Imperio Cerdo{OCLCbr#BB} y declaraba que no solo no era inmoral robar en él, sino que era inmoral no hacerlo
Revolution for the hell of it by Abbie Hoffman( Book )

17 editions published between 1968 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En los años 60, América sufre una auténtica hemorragia: todo se fuga, todo se escapa. Los jóvenes fuman marihuana, escuchan a los Beatles, se dejan el pelo largo, abandonan las carreras y queman sus cartillas de reclutamiento. Es el movimiento hippie, la contracultura americana, la "nación de Woodstock". Un nuevo pueblo, una nueva sociedad, otro estado mental. Los miembros del Youth International Party (Partido Internacional de la Juventud), conocidos como los yippies, se autoproclaman vanguardia del movimiento. Una vanguardia política que pretende organizar el éxodo del viejo mundo y hacer de la gratuidad una estrategia revolucionaria. Una vanguardia delirante que se opone mediante el absurdo a la "racionalidad" de un sistema que baña a los niños vietnamitas en napalm. Una vanguardia estética, erótica y sensible que basa su política en sacudir el deseo social mediante imágenes. Los yippies entienden la revolución como una lucha de símbolos y dedican la mayor parte de sus esfuerzos activistas a la creación de mitos, rumores y ficciones. Como distintas formas de comunicar la belleza exuberante de la cultura juvenil alternativa y perturbar a los espectadores con imágenes irresistibles de otro mundo. Muchas de sus prácticas (guerrilla de la comunicación, performance callejera, nombres colectivos, humor y absurdo) han sido retomadas por los movimientos políticos más creativos de los últimos años. Yippie! Una pasada de revolución presenta por primera vez en castellano los mejores escritos de Abbie Hoffman, el líder yippie que conjugó las teorías de Marshall McLuhan, la sátira de Lenny Bruce, el ritmo de los Beatles y el teatro de Artaud en el desafío más radical y extravagante lanzado nunca contra la sociedad americana

Legendary radio personality Bob Fass revolutionized the FM airwaves in the 1960s and '70s with his free-form program Radio Unnameable, a cultural hub for music, politics, and audience engagement. For nearly 50 years, he has been heard at midnight on New York City listener-sponsored station WBAI, utilizing the airwaves for mobilization long before today's innovations in social media. Drawing from Fass's extraordinary personal archive of audio recordings, including interviews with Allen Ginsberg and Abbie Hoffman, and performances by Bob Dylan, Arlo Guthrie, and Carly Simon, "Radio Unnameable" celebrates the profoundly influential career of one of radio's unsung heroes
