New York Times bestseller! Sales phenomenon! Now in an entirely new compact-sized paperback...at a mind-blowing price.

Experience the ultimate flashback with this celebration of an era. Rich in illustrations and filled with the history, politics, sayings, and slogans that defined an age, this tribute to the 1960's counterculture is as groovy as it gets. For those who were there, this volume will invoke the spirit of the time. Those who weren't, will wish they had been.

Sex, drugs, and rock and roll; peace rallies and riots in the ghettos; Flower Power, Black Power, and Gay Power; Mothers of Invention and Women's Liberation; Woodstock, Monterey Pop, and Altamont. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times: it all depends on whom you ask. But without a doubt, hippies transformed society. Take a magical mystery tour through this revolutionary period. Every significant moment comes vibrantly alive once again in day-glo psychedelic images, rare portraits of writers and musicians, dynamite poster and album artwork, and photographic records of political events that shook the world. Hundreds of unforgettable quotations come from seminal figures such as Ken Kesey, Timothy Leary, Grace Slick, George Harrison, and Wavy Gravy.

Proceeding year by year from 1965-1971, Hippie gives an unprecedented degree of shape and coherence to an age of change--from the free-loving flower children of Haight-Ashbery to the student protesters of France--that by its nature is kaleidoscopically bewildering.

  • Almost perfect

    This book was fairly exhaustive and seems accurate. However there is one glaring chapter missing: Jesus Freaks - there is nothing about the Hippie Jesus Freak movement. It's a movement and one facet of the greater hippie culture that birthed such Christian churches as the Vineyard (and others). This practice of Christianity was just as prevalent as the influence of Buddhism, Hare Krishna and Yoga in Hippie spirituality. Please also note there is appropriate to the times and artful nudity.
