Abbott Howard Hoffman fue un activista social, escritor y político en los Estados Unidos, cofundador del Partido Internacional de la Juventud (Youth International Party, "Yippies"). Conocido como Abbie Hoffman, escribió Roba este libro (Steal This Book) en 1970 y lo publicó en 1971, con el objetivo de ofrecer una guía para vivir gratis al margen de las grandes corporaciones. Vendió más de 250.000 copias entre abril y noviembre de 1971, e incluye en su primera sección ("Sobrevive") información sobre cómo conseguir gratis comida, ropa, muebles, transporte, alojamiento, educación, atención médica, medios de comunicación, etc. La siguiente sección ("¡Lucha!") contiene consejos sobre cómo iniciar un periódico underground, una radio o televisión de guerrilla, cómo actuar cuando se desata la violencia en una manifestación, cómo lograr asesoramiento legal, técnicas para robar en las tiendas, cultivar cannabis, vivir en una comuna... La última parte, titulada "Libérate", incluye capítulos tales como "¡Que le den a Nueva York!" "¡Que le den a Chicago!", "¡Que le den a Los Angeles!" y "¡Que le den a San Francisco!". El libro es una ampliación de Fuck the System (1967), un panfleto que ha acompañado en algunas ediciones estadounidenses a Revolution for the Hell of It. Merece la pena echarle un vistazo aunque solo sea para ver las ilustraciones
Revolution for the hell of it by Abbie Hoffman( Book )

13 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the supremely popular Steal This Book is a guide to living outside the establishment, Revolution for the Hell of It is a chronicle of Abbie Hoffman's radical escapades that doubles as a guidebook for today's social and political activist. Hoffman pioneered the use of humor, theater, and shock value to drive home his points, and in Revolution for the Hell of It he gives firsthand accounts of his legendary adventures, from the activism that led to the founding of the Youth International Party'or "Yippies!'to the 1968 Democratic National Convention protests ("a Perfect Mess") that resulted in his conviction as part of the Chicago Seven. Also chronicled are the mass demonstrations he led in which over fifty thousand people attempted to levitate the Pentagon using psychic energy, and the time he threw fistfuls of dollar bills onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and watched the traders scramble. With antiwar sentiment once again in a furor and an incendiary political climate not seen since the book's original printing, Abbie Hoffman's voice is more essential than ever

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
