Summary

Summary

Considered extremists because of their attitudes toward civil rights, sexual freedom, organized religion, the war in Vietnam, drugs, equal rights for women, and the environment, yesterday's hippies have matured into today's political and corporate leaders. McCleary's idiosyncratic and comprehensive compendium of hippie culture captures the attitudes, goals, and key events of the movement and its colorful cast of characters. His A-to-Z listings includes political figures, civil rights leaders, pro-and anti-war activists, rock and roll stars, feminists, and gurus, in addition to the wealth of slang that distinguished the truly hip from the forever square. The author is an unabashed admirer of the period, and his keen observations create a lively but complex portrait of an America in transition.
