For a short period (mid sixties - early seventies) it really did seem like it was possible to change the world. Maybe because after the post war years people had more money, were better educated and did feel they had the faculties to question authority, especially concerning black rights, the vietnam war, and women's liberation. The details contained in this book concerning those groups desiring revolution - the Black Panther group, the SNCC, the White Panther group and the Yippies etc. are truly revelationary, not just within the details of the lengths these groups would go in pursuit of their causes, but also in their desire to ensure they gained as much publicity as possible by rallying many of the top musical stars to their causes. Not all pop stars wanted necessarily to relate, or get too heavily involved, and sometimes it wasn't always easy to know where to draw the line, which was especially true of John Lennon.Read more ›
