    One thought on “Hippie Hippie Shake: The Dreams, The Trips, The Trials, The Love Ins, The Screw Ups, The Sixties”

    1. Richard Neville, the editor of a little publication called OZ, was a key figure among the international underground of the late 1960s, those freaks, hippies, and political radicals with whom the era is so identified I first became familiar with his activities during this time by reading his 1970 book PLAYPOWER, a fascinating journalistic chronicle of three years of social change when it seemed the old order of things would be completely done away with by young people with unquashable joie de viv [...]

    2. Loved this book, great pace, read like a who s who of the late sixties I always have the feeling that New Zealand missed out on this era but maybe that s because I was born in the late 60s and my parents missed the boat too I remember Germaine Greer being on the tv, burning her bra and the 2nd wave of feminisim that arrived in NZ around the mid to late 70s or perhaps just my perception that it happened then , but don t remember anything before that Anyway this is a rolicking autobiography, funny [...]

    3. Great book covering such a manic time late 60 s early 70 s You have to concentrate as the narrative doesn t flow easily with lots of transient characters coming and going Which in turn keeps it such an interesting read

    4. This is the 3rd Neville book I ve read Playpower and the Sobrajh book I read long ago This is a mature book than I recall the other two being Neville made a bit of a splash in hippie journalism in London in the 60s and 70s, publishing and editing Oz magazine He gives us an unvarnished memoir of his boyhood in Australia in the 60s Sydney University with Germaine Greer, Clive James and Jenny Kee and on to Oz Australia and Oz UK Neville shares his mixture of pride and embarrassment at his actions [...]

    5. But the delusions of hope, if they are delusions, among radical intellectuals, are often rewarding for society, if not for their own lives, than the realistic assessment of the evils of human nature by those who are wise in their times Mostly froth apart from the inside view of the OZ obscenity trial which highlighted the inherent hypocrisy of the British establishment once againGood times, I miss them And for the record the Schoolkids OZ was pretty tame

    6. This book is in sheer contrast with those of Barry Miles, who describes the sixties as a somewhat weird but gentle era as British gentlemen normally use to do Neville writes about police brutality, raw sex, dangerous drugs, mad people Obviously he was some kind of an arsehole himself, trying to get all the pussy he could get, to stay in line with the sexual revolution Germaine Greer hates him Good book.

    7. As an American reading this book, I was amazed at what goes on in a British courtroom The trials of Oscar Wilde must have been somewhat similar otherwise it would not be remembered over 100 years later Needless to say, this makes Alice in Wonderland look like a serious documentary And just when you thought American style police brutality did not exist in Britain.

    8. A wickedly entertaining guide to the sixties read it to reminisce or find out what you missed Really interesting to look back now and see how the Establishment of the day dealt with the perceived threat of the hippie generation Bring back Flower Power say I

    9. Starts slow in Australia but picks up speed in London The obscenity trial and the description of the British justice system are gonzo Freedom of speech activists should take notes.
