Revolution for the hell of it by Abbie Hoffman( Book )

15 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 632 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

Radio unnameable( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Soon to be a major motion picture by Abbie Hoffman( Book )

7 editions published between 1980 and 1994 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture is the life story of one of the most important activists of the 20th century. Hoffman's book opens with his reflections on his suburban Jewish upbringing and early rebelliousness and goes on to recount his involvement in the student movement at Berkeley in the early 1960s, the anti-war demonstrations of the late '60s and early '70s, and his years as a fugitive from the American justice system. Along the way he gives behind-the-scenes details about the events at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago and subsequent Chicago Seven trial, his "levitation" of the Pentagon, and his friendships with Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, Allen Ginsberg, and many others. For this edition, his widow, Johanna Lawrenson, has written a new afterword about Hoffman's activism in the '80s and his legacy today. Insightful, funny, and often moving, Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture is a self-portrait of a radical taking stock of his life's work
