Summary
"This overstuffed book is not only the first biography of the infamous and ubiquitous Jerry Rubin -- co-founder of the Yippies, Anti-Vietnam War activist Chicago 8 defendant, social-networking pioneer, and a proponent of the Yuppie era -- but an overstuffed chronicle of Rubin's life (and ours) through those tumultuous times, including correspondence with Abbie Hoffman, Norman Mailer, John & Yoko, Eldridge Cleaver, the Weathermen, countless candid photos, personal diaries, and lost newspaper clippings. Thomas interviewed more than 75 of Rubin's friends, foes, and comrades including Chicago 8 defendants, participants in the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, Paul Krassner, Judy Gumbo, John Sinclair, Rennie Davis, and many others. It reveals Rubin's and the Yippies' historical yet bizarre personal interactions with the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Phil Ochs, Bob Dylan, Timothy Leary, Charles Manson, Mick Jagger, and other iconic figures of the era, and explores the often-misunderstood relationship between Rubin and his partner-in-crime Hoffman, with new insights into their Yippie vs. Yuppie debates."--Publisher's website
