There's a Riot Going On: Revolutionaries, Rock Stars, and the Rise and Fall of 60s Counter-culture

by Peter Doggett - £14.99  Canongate Books Ltd (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847671141 | ISBN 10: 1847671144

Between 1965 and 1972, political activists around the globe prepared to mount a revolution, from the Black Panthers to the Gay Liberation Front, from the Yippies to the IRA. Rock and soul music supplied the revolutionary tide with anthems and iconic imagery; and renowned musicians such as John Lennon, Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan were particularly influential in the movement.
 
This is the definitive account of this unique period in modern history; a compelling portrait of an era when revolutionaries turned into rock stars, and rock stars dressed up as revolutionaries.
