Description

A handbook of survival and warfare for the citizens of Woodstock Nation

A classic of counterculture literature and one of the most influential--and controversial--documents of the twentieth century, Steal This Book is as valuable today as the day it was published. It has been in print continuously for more than four decades, and it has educated and inspired countless thousands of young activists.

Conceived as an instruction manual for radical social change, Steal This Book is divided into three sections--Survive! Fight! and Liberate! Ever wonder how to start a guerilla radio station? Or maybe you want to brush up on your shoplifting techniques. Perhaps you're just looking for the best free entertainment in New York City. (The Frick Collection--"Great when you're stoned.")
Packed with information, advice, and Abbie's unique outlaw wisdom ("Avoid all needle drugs--the only dope worth shooting is Richard Nixon."), Steal This Book is a timeless reminder that, no matter what the struggle, freedom is always worth fighting for.

"All Power to the Imagination was his credo. Abbie was the best."--Studs Terkel

About the Author

Abbie Hoffman (1936-1989) was an American political and social activist, anarchist, and revolutionary who co-founded the Youth International Party ("Yippies"). He was arrested and tried for his role in protests that led to violent confrontations with police during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Hoffman continued his activism into the 1970s, and remains an icon of the anti-war movement and the counterculture era.
