Smoking typewriters : the Sixties underground press and the rise of alternative media in America by John Campbell McMillian( )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How did the New Left uprising of the 1960s happen? What caused millions of young people--many of them affluent and college educated--to suddenly decide that American society needed to be completely overhauled? Historian John McMillian shows that one answer to these questions can be found in the emergence of a dynamic underground press in the 1960s. Following the lead of papers like the Los Angeles Free Press, the East Village Other, and the Berkeley Barb, young people across the country launched hundreds of mimeographed pamphlets and flyers, small press magazines, and underground newspapers. New and cheap printing technologies had democratized the publishing process, and by the decade's end the combined circulation of underground papers stretched into the millions. Though not technically illegal, these papers were often genuinely subversive, and many who produced and sold them--on street-corners, at poetry readings, gallery openings, and coffeehouses--became targets of harassment from local and federal authorities. With writers who actively participated in the events they described, underground newspapers captured the zeitgeist of the '60s, speaking directly to their readers, and reflecting and magnifying the spirit of cultural and political protest. McMillian gives special attention to the ways underground newspapers fostered a sense of community and played a vital role in shaping the New Left's "movement culture."--Provided by publisher

Beatles vs. Stones by John Campbell McMillian( Book )

19 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the sophistication of a historian, the storytelling skills of a journalist, and the passion of a fan, John McMillian explores the multifaceted relationship between the two greatest bands of our time. In the 1960s the two biggest bands in the world--the lovable Beatles and the bad-boy Rolling Stones--waged an epic battle. The Beatles want to hold your hand, wrote Tom Wolfe, but the Stones want to burn down your town. Both groups liked to maintain that they weren't really rivals--that was just a media myth, they politely said--but on both sides of the Atlantic, they plainly competed for commercial success and aesthetic credibility. In Beatles vs. Stones, John McMillian gets to the truth behind the ultimate rock 'n' roll debate. McMillian reveals how music managers helped to construct the Beatles-Stones rivalry as they set out to engineer moneymaking empires. He explores how the Beatles were marketed as cute and amiable, when in fact they came from hardscrabble backgrounds in Liverpool. By contrast, the Stones were cast as an edgy, dangerous group, even though they mostly hailed from the London suburbs. Although the Beatles always sold more records than the Stones, the Stones seemed to win greater credibility with the right types of fans: discerning bohemians, as opposed to hysterical teenyboppers. Later, the Beatles embraced Flower Power, while the Stones briefly aligned themselves with New Left militance. Ever since, writers and historians have associated the Beatles with the gauzy idealism of the good sixties and portrayed the Stones as representatives of the dangerous and nihilistic bad sixties. Beatles vs. Stones explodes that split. In a lively narrative that whisks readers from Liverpool to London to New York City--and to various recording studios, nightclubs, concerts, courtrooms, and protest rallies in between--McMillian also delves into the personal relationships between the two groups. In one chapter we see Lennon and McCartney huddle up in a rehearsal space and show the Stones how to write their own material; in another we eavesdrop on Jagger and Richards as they watch the Beatles play Shea Stadium from the visitors' dugout. McMillian also shows us how the two groups feuded about which act would headline a legendary Poll Winners' concert and the pernicious effect that the American businessman Allen Klein had on both bands. Based on exhaustive research in primary sources, including overlooked teen magazines and underground newspapers, Beatles vs. Stones tells a vital story of the 1960s through the lens of music's greatest rivalry. Spirited, insightful, and gracefully written, this is the definitive account of the friendship and rivalry between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones."

How to subvert democracy : Montesinos in Peru by John MacMillan( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Which of the democratic checks and balances - opposition parties, the judiciary, a free press -is the most critical? Peru has the full set of democratic institutions. In the 1990s, the secret-police chief Vladimiro Montesinos systematically undermined them all with bribes. We quantify the checks using the bribe prices. Montesinos paid television-channel owners about 100 times what he paid judges and politicians. One single television channel s bribe was four times larger than the total of the opposition politicians bribes. By revealed preference, the strongest check on the government s power was the news media

Beatles vs. Stones hva skjedde egentlig? by John McMillian( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Norwegian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

I 1960-årene pågikk det en tilsynelatende bitter kamp mellom to av datidens største band, de pene guttene i The Beatles og de litt røffere typene i The Rolling Stones. Selv om bandmedlemmene gikk ut og forklarte at det egentlig ikke var en reell feide, og at det hele var medieskapt, var det få som trodde på dem. I denne boken viser John McMillian hva som faktisk er sannheten bak den påståtte rivaliseringen. Han avslører hvordan knivingen mellom de to bandene ble hauset opp av folk i musikkbransjen som kun var opptatt av en ting: å tjene mest mulig penger
