Product description

The "utterly unputdownable" ("Sunday Times") and Scandalous chronicle of Britain's wild and wonderful '60s cultural transformation. As publisher of the satirical magazine "Oz" --the hippies' handbook and a monument to psychedelia --Richard Neville was at the center 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, John Lennon and Yoko Ono marched in protest. With an updated chapter on the legacy of flower power a generation later, Neville demythologizes the 1960s in this hilarious, colorful, and provocative memoir of the time.
