Dancin' in the Streets! Anarchists, Iwws, Surrealists, Situationists & Provos in the 1960s

Description

Cultural Writing. Most books on the 1960's focus on large liberal organizations and reformist politics. This one is unabashedly devoted to the far left of the far left. DANCIN' IN THE STREETS is a collection of writings from two legendary but hard-to-find journals, The Rebel Worker and Heatwave, known for their highly original revolutionary perspective, innovative social/cultural criticism, and uninhibited class-war humor. "With its heady mix of surrealism, the [Industrial Workers of the World] heritage, free jazz, and Bugs Bunny...Look here for links between the Beat Generation 'Mimeo Generation' and later Underground Press, but also between traditional Marxist theory and the new 'critique of everyday life' developed by an increasingly defiant and countercultural young left that made Martha and the Vandellas' 'Dancin' in the Streets' its international anthem"--Paul Buhle.
