Abbie  Hoffman "Steal This Book" (Da Capo Press)



I was very intrigued with the title of this book, and as it was only twenty five pence recent;y found in a charity shop it was a steal!

It is very much a construe cultural book of the sixties and seventies and is somewhat outdated now. However, it is fascinating to read about how the counter couture viewed itself in the heady days of the early 1970's.

Then maybe it is relevant again. Much of the information is out of date,yes, but not the overall feeling that we live in a dictatorship again (as Abbie celled the US in this book a "Latin dictatorship) with the twin evils of Trump and May,and that an underground socialist t revolution and anarchy is just what we need right now

An enjoyable mind changing book either way.
