Memories of a Metropolitan Indian- Italian Autonomia

A former Metropolitan Indian (member of a situationist-influenced group in Italy) recounts some experiences with the group during the “Years of Lead”: the violent late-1970s.

Up Against the Wall Motherfucker!: A Memoir of Anarchism in the ’60s By Osha Neumann

They called themselves the Motherfuckers; others called them a “street gang with an analysis.” Osha Neumann’s thoughtful, funny, and honest account of his part in ’60s counterculture is also an unflinching look at what all that rebellion of the past means today. The fast moving story follows the establishment of the Motherfuckers, who influenced the Yippies and members of SDS; makes vivid the art, music, and politics of the era;… …
