Revolt: East Village Activism Literature, 1960s through 1990s - Eric Ferrara

Revolt: East Village Activism Literature, 1960s through 1990s


Over 300 pages of rare radical zines, pamphlets and posters, scanned from the archives of Lower East Side History Project. A unique glimpse into the unquestionable revolutionary culture of New York City's East Village in the later 20th century. Included in this 8" x 10" publication are over 300 pages of very rare, first-edition books, pamphlets, zines, newsletters and posters from the era, fully scanned in their entirety, from the private collection of Lower East Side History Project. With titles like, "F ck the System" (1967), "The Bust Book" (1969), and "Anarchism and the Feminist Connection" (1977), many of these texts call for subversion, anarchy, socialism, and general reorder of society -- timeless radical themes which hold up just as much today as they did at the time of their publication. Examine how readers at the time were encouraged to deal with confrontations with police, prepare for a demonstration, and scam the establishment. For example: In 1969's "F ck the System" -- written by YIPPIE-movement founder Abbie Hoffman under the pseudonym "George Matesky" -- the author teaches his audience how to dress like a priest for free meat, double as a lecturer for a free college education, and dumpster-dive behind doctors' offices for free drugs. In a booklet entitled, "A Draft Proposal for the Founding of the International Working Peoples Association" (1979), activist, anarchist, and former Black Panther Party member Lorenzo Kom'boa Ervin writes from prison: "Our objective is to overthrow the capitalist system and political state, and its replacement with workers' self-management of the economy and society..." In 1977's "Anarchy and the Feminist Connection," author Peggy Kornegger notes, "As anarcho-feminists, we want to end all forms of domination. Money is a symbol of power because it is a tool of power. It is a means of enforcing racism, sexism, or starvation and control over basic survival." Fair housing, politics, the economy, the environment, development, art, protest, drugs, sexism, class warfare, poverty, sexism, racism -- its all covered in this thrilling 310-page book, "REVOLT: East Village Activism Literature, 1960s-1990s."
