♥ 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 Hippies
☯ Full Synopsis : "Among the most significant subcultures in modern U.S. history, the hippies had a far-reaching impact. Their influence essentially defined the 1960s—hippie antifashion, divergent music, dropout politics and “make love not war” philosophy extended to virtually every corner of the world and remains influential. The political and cultural institutions that the hippies challenged, or abandoned, mainly prevailed. Yet the nonviolent, egalitarian hippie principles led an era of civic protest that brought an end to the Vietnam War. Their enduring impact was the creation of a 1960s frame of reference among millions of baby boomers, whose attitudes and aspirations continue to reflect the hip ethos of their youth."Article| John Anthony Moretta| Statement ..."

♥ 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 ..."

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. With the information and affection only a brother could bring to the complexities of Abbie's life, Jack Hoffman, together with Daniel Simon, portrays Abbie's public persona alongside his private aspirations and fears, romances, and enduring family relationships."Article| Jack Hoffman| Statement ..."
