New York: Random House Rolling Stone Book, 1984. First edition. Hardcover. The first comprehensive history of the movement that culminated in San Francisco's famous Summer of Love, is a hip, richly detailed analysis of one of the most dynamic periods in recent American history. The Haight-Ashbury movement of 1965-67-named after a run-down Victorian neighborhood in San Francisco, which became its home--was one of the most written about and discussed events of the late sixties. Everyone recognized that something frightening amusing or insane was happening but no one was able to explain the movement's origins, possibilities and meaning. Now, however, Charles Perry has written the definitive account of this phenomenon by virtue of prodigious research historical perspective, periods documents and scores of interviews. 306 pages with index. Illustrated from photographs (black and white). A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Item #15255
