Summary
When it was first published, this book captured a huge audience of Vietnam War protesters, dropouts, and rebels--as well as their baffled elders. The author found common ground between 1960s student radicals and hippie dropouts in their mutual rejection of what he calls the technocracy--the regime of corporate and technological expertise that dominates industrial society. He traces the intellectual underpinnings of the two groups in the writings of Herbert Marcuse, Norman O. Brown, Allen Ginsberg, and Paul Goodman
