The downfall of Nixon,the begining of the west coast counter culture(hippies,Hell's Angels,the Diggers,psychedelia),the rise of Carter,his adventures with a crazed chicano lawyer(later to be the base of "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas")-all here in it's gory details.
The funniest sequences are when Thompson discovers that he isn't on Nixon's Enemies List,and his description of President Johnson allegedly ordering the spreading of rumours about another candidate to the effect that Johnson's opponent was in the habit of enjoying sex with farmyard animals.
If you're offended by colloquial English,drugs,radical politics,human sexuality,rock music or honesty,go elsewhere.Otherwise you'll have a whale of a time.
