Auteur: Stewart, Sean
Titel: On the Ground
Sub titel: An Illustrated Anecdotal History of the Sixties Underground Press in the U.S.
n four short years (1965-1969), the underground press grew from five small newspapers in as many cities in the U.S. to over 500 newspapers----with millions of readers----all over the world. Completely circumventing (and subverting) establishment media by utilizing their own news service and freely sharing content amongst each other, the underground press, at its height, became the unifying institution for the counterculture of the 1960s. Comprised of stories told by the people involved with the production and distribution of the newspapers----John Sinclair, Art Kunkin, Paul Krassner, Emory Douglas, John Wilcock, Bill Ayers, Spain Rodriguez, Trina Robbins, and more----and featuring over 50 full-color scans taken from a broad range of newspapers----Berkeley Barb, Chicago Seed, It Ain't Me Babe, Los Angeles Free Press, Osawatomie, Rat Subterranean News, San Francisco Express Times, The Black Panther, The East Village Other, The Realist, and many more----the book provides a true window into the spirit of the times.
