The Summer of Love brought us sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll, but it was also a decade of extremes and radical cultural change that, in many ways, mirrors what’s going on today. A renewed interest in psychedelic drugs? Check. Women organizing for vast social change? Check. The back-to-the-land movement? You bet. Join historians, and journalists, for an explosive look at how counterculture meets cyberculture. A fresh review of fifty years!
