The Haight-Ashbury: A History

by Charles Perry

In honor of the fortieth anniversary of the legendary San Francisco scene, this comprehensive account of San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury draws on personal experiences, period documents, and scores of interviews to illuminate and assess an important counterculture phenomenon.

Covering the rise, decline and eventual collapse of the Haight-Ashbury hippie scene, this is a detailed history. The author actually lived in the neighborhood at the time which gives the book an insider’s feel. Charles Perry covers all sorts of different things including the great concert posters and the artists who created them, the book stores, junk stores and coffee shops, the various big personalities and groups and their philosophies, the Grateful Dead, the Airplane, Ken Kesey and his acid tests and on and on.
