BAMN: Outlaw Manifestos and Ephemera 1965 – 70 Ed. by Peter Stansill and David Zane Mairowitz (Penguin / 1971)
A fascinating document of the then, burgeoning counterculture of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
'This anthology covers many of the radical and visionary movements, groups, and cells of protest and propaganda of the past five years. It takes in the "Provos" of Amsterdam, the Black Panthers, the Yippies, and the English Situationists, the Women's Liberation Movement, the worldwide commune movement and the growing protest against ecological destruction.
'Here are many of the essential documents of the international underground and of its ephemera, including wall newspapers and leaflets. In addition, the editors have written a linking commentary to provide the essential historical context for each thematic section. No one political stance is adopted in these pages, but the book is essential for understanding the depth and range of contemporary protest and call to action (By Any Means Necessary) within what is often called "the counterculture".'
First Penguin paperback edition. Creasing and other wear to spine indicates that this book has been thoroughly read. Large crease across top, left-hand corner of back cover. Otherwise, binding remains sound and clean, unmarked, lightly-tanned pages which are free of notes and underlining etc and book is in good condition overall.
