♥ Book Title : Revolution for the Hell of it
☯ Full Synopsis : "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."Article| Abbie Hoffman| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "An intimate portrait of one of the most fascinating and complex history-makers of our century, published to coincide with the 30th anniversary of his death Intertwining the details of Abbie Hoffman's intense personal life with the dramatic politics of the sixties, seventies, and eighties, Jack Hoffman creates a full and poignant portrait of his older brother. From the creation of the Yippies! in 1967, the tumult of the 1968 Democratic Natonal Convention protests, the humor and agaony of the Chicago conspiracy trial, the scandal of Abbie's 1973 cocaine bust and his six and half years as a fugitive, to his reemergence as environmentalist "Barry Freed" and his final struggle with manic-depressive illness, this biography offers a compelling examination of the contradictions that make Abbie Hoffman such a compelling figure.

♥ Book Title : The Death of Abbie Hoffman and Other Plays
☯ Full Synopsis : "A Montreal-based playwright, Rana Bose is part of Serai, an alternative cultural group which produces plays and publishes a literary journal. Born and brought up in Calcutta, his links with the culture of his native country remain strong. All three of the plays in this volume have an Indian link; in fact, The Death of Abbie Hoffman was adapted from Michhil (Procession), the milestone play by Badal Sircar, the father figure of avant-garde street theatre in India. On the Double shows how, for Asian immigrant women, the reality of their lives in Canada is no different from what it might have been in Baroda, Ghat Kopar or Beliaghata; and in The Sulpician Escarpment, the roots of the intricate plot lie buried in Calcutta of two decades ago. Hard-hitting, quick-moving, visually striking and very contemporary, these plays show Bose at his best. As he says, his aim is to give the audience a blast . . . plus serve thoughts to go home with. Political content has to be subtextual. Rana Bose has been writing plays which have been performed across Canada. He is currently working on a novel. Uma Parameswaran, who introduces this volume, is a poet and fiction-writer who lives in Canada. She is Professor of English at the University of Winnipeg."Article| no defined| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Autobiography of Abbie Hoffman
☯ Full Synopsis : "The Autobiography of Abbie Hoffman tells the story of one of America's most influential and imaginative dissidents, a major figure in the 1960s counterculture and anti-war movement who remained a dedicated political organizer right up until his death in 1989. With his unique brand of humor, wit, and energetic narrative, Abbie Hoffman describes the history of his times and provides a first-hand account of such memorable actions as the "levitation" of the Pentagon, the dropping of dollar bills onto the New York Stock Exchange floor, and the Chicago 8 Trial, which followed the demonstrations at the 1968 Democratic Convention, as well as his friendships with Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, Allen Ginsberg, and many others. Originally published in 1980 as Soon to Be a Major Motion Picture, this memoir has been out of print for nearly 10 years. This edition includes a new selection of photographs chosen by his widow, Johanna Lawrenson, as well as a new afterword by Howard Zinn celebrating Hoffman's enduring activist legacy."Article| Abbie Hoffman| Statement ..."
