Printing Details

First UK edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 128pp.

Not signed but from the library of, and with the owl bookplate of, Felix Dennis, the publisher, poet, spoken-word performer and philanthropist, and co-editor of Oz magazine.

In this boldly provocative analysis of the under-thirty generation, John W. Aldridge has written a brilliant commentary on youth and the state of American society today. He shares his views on the psychology of campus activism, hippy culture, the promiscuous child-breeders of the forties and fifties, life in the wall-to-wall ghettos of suburbia, the implications of a youth-dominated anti-utopia, and above all, the civilized values we must defend.


The book is in very sound condition, the dustwrapper a little tanned to the edges but now within a protective sleeve.
