Product Description

Product Description

In the late 1960’s, Ann Arbor, Michigan was at the center of a series of brutal serial murders. Over the course of two years, seven young women would lose their lives.
At the same time, the city was experiencing a cultural overhaul that would turn the staid and conservative seat of Washtenaw County into a hotbed of radical ideas and practices that was creating a Mecca for the young citizens of the 1960’s counter-culture, fueled by the drugs, a political awakening and a sexual revolution that would define the 1960’s.
Among the key players in this local radicalization were John Sinclair and the White Panther Party, which the FBI called "potentially the largest and most dangerous of revolutionary organizations in the United States." Sinclair would be infamously sentenced to 9½-10 years in a maximum security prison for possession of two joints, (marijuana cigarettes) and the White Panther Party’s Minister of Defense would become the first of the 60’s hippy radicals to be placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list.
Against this backdrop, the police thought that the murderer could be one of these drugged out weirdo's, but when he was finally caught...

4.0 out of 5 stars A moment in town 8 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyable look at the Michigan counterculture of the late sixties/early 70s.Depicting the era of John Sinclair,the White Panther Party and the MC5.The other main theme running through the book is the series of murders occurring of young college students.For the price this is a great read,profusely illustrated with colour and black and white photos.My only quibble I would've liked to have read more of The Stooges but that's probably my own personal bias.

2.0 out of 5 stars really disorganized 29 Mar 2013
By Donna Galloway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was not sure what the author was trying to convey, part history, part opinion, not really well written, and mixing in to many not related events in weird places in the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating time 14 Sep 2013
By Matthew M. Lampe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting recounting of Ann Arbor in the 60's and 70's, interweaving the story of a serial killer with the tumult of radical and hippy movements. Has a lot of hits, regarding the West Park concerts, Sheriff Harvey's Police riot on South University, and the facts relating to the murders and John Mormon Collins, but also is factually very inaccurate in attributing a lot of community institutions to the influence of John Sinclair and the White/Rainbow People's Party...Drug Help, Ozone House, the Free People's Clinic, the People's Ballroom, and the restarting of the Sunday Concerts at Gallup Park...people from the WPP/RPP and the Ann Arbor Argus /Sun were involved, but were not at the committed core that raised the money, negotiated with the City, managed the operations, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read about Ann Arbor history, but formatting of the ebook is a bit sloppy 4 Dec 2012

Good read about Ann Arbor history, but formatting of the ebook is a bit sloppy; it's a bit hard to read in places because of the page layout.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was a blast from the past... 3 Dec 2012
By David L. Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an Ann Arbor native, coming of age in the '60s and actually witnessing a particular "incident" on S. University during the riots, and having hung out on Hill Street, it was like being transported back in time. While I was in the area at the time, I learned a lot about how the coed murders were investigated and solved. I would recommend this to anyone who has any interest in the culture (and subcultures) of this era in Ann Arbor's history.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frequent grammatical errors are a serious distraction from the content 22 Nov 2013
By Anne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the grammatical errors terribly distracting. Particularly frequent were possessives where there should have been plurals (panty's rather than panties) and plurals where there should have been possessives (the states rather than the state's). Pretty embarrassing to realize the author is a product of the Ann Arbor Public Schools. Way too much discussion about the effects of LSD.
