The life of Abbie Hoffman, cofounder of the Yippie movement and a prominent activist of the twentieth century.

Steal this book by Abbie Hoffman( Book )

34 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 671 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 )

18 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 648 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
