New York, NY: Harper & Row, 1971. First Softcover Edition. Softcover. A quintessential radical-chic polemic by 1960s countercultural Yippie icon Jerry Rubin (1938 - 1994). Written while incarcerated in the Cook County Jail as a defendant in the infamous "Chicago Seven" trial in the wake of mayhem during the 1968 Democratic Convention, this highly illustrated series of rants is "...dedicated to the Weather Underground." With praise for the Black Panthers, anti-Vietnam War protesters- generally any & all anti-establishment, countercultural movements circa 1969. An omnibus of omni-rebellion, with Rubin's unique blend of fist-shaking anger & prankish humor. This is the first softcover edition, stated on copyright page. As noted at lower edge of back cover, "A hardbound edition of this book (was) published by Harper & row." Interestingly, Rubin aged into something of a capitalist entrepreneur after the incendiary 1960s, but remained rebellious right up to his untimely death at fifty-six when he was hit by a car while defiantly jaywalking near his penthouse apartment in Los Angeles. A now-classic Rubin rarity, most exemplary of the 1960s anti-mainstream explosion. In very fine condition with only mild rubbing & scratching of front, back covers & spine; very light wear & a few short, faint creases at edges & corners of same esp. lower right corner of front cover. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves, which are printed in a variety of colors. Very Fine. [Item #3115]
