FRED TURNER at Books Inc. Mountain View
A journalist for over ten years with writing appearing in various publications, including the Boston Phoenix and Boston Sunday Globe, associate professor of communication at Stanford University, Fred Turner shares The Democratic Surround, a dazzling overturning of the idea that the psychedelic sixties arose in direct revolt against the social restraint and authoritarian hierarchy of the early Cold War years, and shows just how much the artistic and social radicalism of the sixties owed to the liberal ideals of Cold War America, a democratic vision that still underlies our hopes for digital media today.
