Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A driving force behind the social revolution of the 1960s and 1970s, Hoffman inspired a generation to challenge the status quo. Meant as a practical guide for the aspiring hippie, Steal This Book captures Hoffman's puckish tone and became a cult classic with over 200,000 copies sold. Outrageously illustrated by R. Crumb, it nevertheless conveys a serious message to all would-be revolutionaries: You don't have to take it anymore. "All Power to the Imagination was his credo. Abbie was the best." — Studs Terkel

Book News Annotation:

Abbie Hoffman, the most influential sixties humorist/activist/provocateur/yippie/ Pentagon levitator, finished this book in 1970 from the Cook County Jail. It was turned down by 30 publishers, including one who thought it a threat to free speech. Mr. Hoffman reminds us that in "Amerika" [sic], "If we internalize the language and imagery of the pigs, we will forever be fucked," and that "Amerika was built on the slaughter of a people." Provides helpful instructions on stealing and procuring free food and clothing, starting co-ops, and stirring up the media. Features an appendix of organizations serving the people, and a bibliography of other books worth stealing. The reprint of this classic sixties document might remind US instructors to adopt it for class or, at least to place it on a suggested bibliography.
