    DescriptionAs publisher of the satirical magazine "OZ" - the hippies' handbook and monument to psychedelia - Richard Neville was at the centre of a cyclone of radicals, rock musicians, artists and hustlers. "OZ" was at the forefront of the '60s underground movement, featuring articles by Germaine Greer, groundbreaking design by pop artist Martin Sharp and cartoons by Robert Crumb. When the magazine was tried for obscenity at the Old Bailey, John Lennon and Yoko Ono marched in protest and John Peel, George Melly and Edward de Bono were among its defendants. Now updated to include a chapter on the legacy of flower power a generation later, Richard Neville demythologises the 1960s in this hilarious, colorful and provocative memoir of the times.
