The Haight-Ashbury: A History

The Haight-Ashbury: A History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The psychedelic community of San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district was probably the most widely written-about phenomenon of the 1960s outside of the Viet Nam War. But the people who wrote about it were either outsiders who knew nothing about how it arose - the whole event, from first public manifestation to gaudy collapse, took less than two years - or participants clumsily trying to put its best foot forward without referring to its history. How it arose was, in fact, the secret of its mysterious energy: the rise and fall of the Haight Ashbury was gripping drama, concurrently unexpected and awesomely inevitable. The Haight Ashbury, first published to critical acclaim in 1984 and reissued to mark the 40th anniversary of this extraordinary event, is the first volume to establish what happened there, and when, and so foster a true understanding of the social, historical and psychological landmark that is the Haight Ashbury.
