On the Ground: An Illustrated Anecdotal History of the Sixties Underground Press in the U.S.\

July 2012

The underground press of the 1960s is widely considered by participants to be one of the most influential factors in the radical social movements of the time and a lasting influence on American culture. This book offers a window into the ferment of the underground press through a combination of short interview excerpts in which prominent figures of the underground press reflect on their experiences in producing their work together with photo-reproductions of text and images from such publications as The Black Panther, East Village  Other, Helix, Los Angeles Free Press, The Realist, and more.
