Jerry Rubin, An American Revolutionary

This overstuffed coffee table 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 a visual retrospective, with countless candid photos, personal diaries, and lost newspaper clippings. It includes correspondence with Abbie Hoffman, Norman Mailer, John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Eldridge Cleaver, the Weathermen, and interviews with more than 75 of Rubin's friends, foes, and comrades. It reveals Rubins' and the Yippies historical-and-bizarre personal interactions with the likes of Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Charles Manson, Mick Jagger, and other iconic figures of the era.
