Download or read book The Hippie Narrative written by Scott MacFarlane and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2015-01-24 with total page 263 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Hippie movement of the 1960s helped change modern societal attitudes toward ethnic and cultural diversity, environmental accountability, spiritual expressiveness, and the justification of war. With roots in the Beat literary movement of the late 1950s, the hippie perspective also advocated a bohemian lifestyle which expressed distaste for hypocrisy and materialism yet did so without the dark, somewhat forced undertones of their predecessors. This cultural revaluation which developed as a direct response to the dark days of World War II created a counterculture which came to be at the epicenter of an American societal debate and, ultimately, saw the beginnings of postmodernism. Focusing on 1962 through 1976, this book takes a constructivist look at the hippie era’s key works of prose, which in turn may be viewed as the literary canon of the counterculture. It examines the ways in which these works, with their tendency toward whimsy and spontaneity, are genuinely reflective of the period. Arranged chronologically, the discussed works function as a lens for viewing the period as a whole, providing a more rounded sense of the hippie Zeitgeist that shaped and inspired the period. Among the 15 works represented are One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Crying of Lot 49, Trout Fishing in America, Siddhartha, Stranger in a Strange Land, Slaughterhouse Five and The Fan Man.

Book excerpt: Secret societies have both fascinated and frightened people for hundreds of years. Often the infamous Illuminati is mentioned as the core of conspiracies which span the globe. The Illuminati is actually a historical secret society which had goals of revolutions and world domination dating back to the 1770s. Since then, rumors and conspiracy theories involving the Illuminati continue to spread, sometimes finding their way into popular novels like Dan Brown's Angels & Demons and Hollywood movies like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Some men have even come forward claiming to be former members, offering details of what they allege are the inner workings of the organization. When you sift through all of the information available on the subject, you may be surprised that the truth is stranger than fiction. In The Illuminati: Facts & Fiction, conspiracy and occult expert Mark Dice separates history from Hollywood and shows why tales of the secret society won't die. - Original Writings and Documents - Purported Texts - Freemasonry's Connections - The Georgia Guidestones - Alleged Victims and Defectors - Aliens and Reptillians - Activists and Eyewitnesses - Fictional books - Fictional films - TV references - The Music Industry - Mainstream Media Manipulation - Documentary Films - Pre Illuminati Organizations - The Luciferian Doctrine - The Federal Reserve - Skull and Bones - The Bilderberg Group - Bohemian Grove - The Council on Foreign Relations - The Franklin Cover-up - Sex Magic - Election Fraud - The Necronomicon - The Church of Satan - The Secret Doctrine - Emerald Tablet - The Book of Thoth - The Book of Dzyan - The Report From Iron Mountain - Protocols of the Elders of Zion - The Holy Grail - MK-ULTRA Documents - The Satanic Bible - The Secret Doctrine - David Rockefeller's Memoirs - Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism - Secret Societies and Subversive Movements - Occult Theocrasy - Externalization of the Hierarchy - None Dare Call It Conspiracy - Magick: In Theory and Practice - Bloodlines of the Illuminati - The Lexicon of Freemasonry - Morals and Dogma - The Secret Teachings of All Ages - Myron Fagan - Edith Miller - Gary Allen - Abbe Barruel - Nesta Webster - Anthony J.

Download or read book Fear and Loathing in America written by Hunter S. Thompson and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2011-09-27 with total page 784 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the king of “Gonzo” journalism and bestselling author who brought you Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas comes another astonishing volume of letters by Hunter S. Thompson. Brazen, incisive, and outrageous as ever, this second volume of Thompson’s private correspondence is the highly anticipated follow-up to The Proud Highway. When that first book of letters appeared in 1997, Time pronounced it "deliriously entertaining"; Rolling Stone called it "brilliant beyond description"; and The New York Times celebrated its "wicked humor and bracing political conviction." Spanning the years between 1968 and 1976, these never-before-published letters show Thompson building his legend: running for sheriff in Aspen, Colorado; creating the seminal road book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas; twisting political reporting to new heights for Rolling Stone; and making sense of it all in the landmark Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail '72. To read Thompson's dispatches from these years—addressed to the author's friends, enemies, editors, and creditors, and such notables as Jimmy Carter, Tom Wolfe, and Kurt Vonnegut—is to read a raw, revolutionary eyewitness account of one of the most exciting and pivotal eras in American history.
Download or read book Savage Journey written by Peter Richardson and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2023-04-25 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A superbly crafted study of Hunter S. Thompson's literary formation, achievement, and continuing relevance. Savage Journey is a "supremely crafted" study of Hunter S. Thompson's literary formation and achievement. Focusing on Thompson's influences, development, and unique model of authorship, Savage Journey argues that his literary formation was largely a San Francisco story. During the 1960s, Thompson rode with the Hell's Angels, explored the San Francisco counterculture, and met talented editors who shared his dissatisfaction with mainstream journalism. Peter Richardson traces Thompson's transition during this time from New Journalist to cofounder of Gonzo journalism. He also endorses Thompson's later claim that he was one of the best writers using the English language as both a musical instrument and a political weapon. Although Thompson's political commentary was often hyperbolic, Richardson shows that much of it was also prophetic. Fifty years after the publication of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and more than a decade after his death, Thompson's celebrity continues to obscure his literary achievement. This book refocuses our understanding of that achievement by mapping Thompson's influences, probing the development of his signature style, and tracing the reception of his major works. It concludes that Thompson was not only a gifted journalist, satirist, and media critic, but also the most distinctive American voice in the second half of the twentieth century.

This book was released on 2010-05-21 with total page 169 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Diploma Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Vienna (Anglistik und Amerikanistik), language: English, abstract: Der Amerikanische Traum ist in Hunter S. Thompsons Texten ein ständig wiederkehrendes Motiv. Auf der Suche nach dem Traum, war es dem Gonzo-Journalisten nicht genug, die Lage der amerikanischen Nation gegen Ende der 60er Jahre bloß zu schildern, sondern sie zu erleben, um dann keine objektive Wahrheit, sondern seine subjektive Sicht der Dinge niederzuschreiben. Seine Beschreibungen der amerikanischen Nation und deren Traum in seinen Werken Angst und Schrecken in Las Vegas und Angst und Schrecken: Im Wahlkampf ′72 sind kaum positiv. Im Gegenteil. Er verweist sogar auf den Tod des Amerikanischen Traumes und den Verfall Amerikas. Der Traum erscheint ihm in vielerlei Gestalt: in Symbolen, wie zum Beispiel der von Geld und Einfluss regierten Stadt Las Vegas, die Thompsons Alter Ego Raoul Duke als Nervenzentrum des Traums identifiziert; Seine Protagonisten durchleuchten die traditionellen Werte der Gesellschaft und müssen feststellen, dass sie sich bei näherem Betrachten als Heuchelei erweisen - als Mythos, wie eben der Amerikanische Traum selbst. Der Reporter, der auf Grund seines einzigartigen Schreibstils oft als Stiefkind der New Journalists oder gesetzloser Journalist (Outlaw Journalist) bezeichnet wurde, wird von der Angst - der Angst vor dem Untergang alles Guten für das Amerika seiner Meinung nach einmal eingetreten ist - übermannt. In seinen von Halluzinogenen eingefärbten Charakterisierungen entlarvt er die Gesellschaft als korrupt, oberflächlich und gierig. Versteckt hinter dem nationalen Moralkodex und unter dem Vorwand den Amerikanischen Traum zu suchen, erlauben seine Mitmenschen sich dem Journalisten der Freiheit zu berauben, und somit seinen persönlichen Traum zu zerstören. Jedoch nimmt Thompson nicht die Rolle des Moralapostels ein, sondern beweist immer wieder seine Mit
