Description

The original edition of this text found common ground between student radicals and hippie dropouts in their mutual rejection of technocracy - the regime of corporate and technological expertise that dominates industrial society. The book teaces the intellectual underpinnings of the two groups in the writings of Herbert Marcuse and Norman O. Brown, Allan Ginsberg and Paul Goodman. This edition reflects on the evolution of counter culture since Roszak coined the term in the `60s.
