The Hippies: A 1960s History.


The Hippies: A 1960s History

John Anthony Moretta



420 pages



Through interviews and primary source material, Moretta traces the 1960s hippie movement through fashion, music, and most importantly, politics. San Francisco is well represented, as are cities not immediately thought of as hippie havens, such as Detroit. Of special note is the discussion of the backlash to the hippie movement following a series of shocking events including the Manson murders and the DNC riots in Chicago. The text covers drug use and its importance to the movement as well as discussing the essential poets who became the movement's driving forces. Photographs from the era are included.
