Mapping out utopia: 1970s Boston-area counterculture

book 1 (Cambridge), book 2 (Boston), & book 3 (the surrounding communities, including Somerville, Brookline & Newton)

MAPPING OUT UTOPIA is a three-part look at the Boston area's 1970s counterculture, based on listings found in old countercultural directories and magazines. Each volume of MAPPING OUT UTOPIA maps out a different part of the city.

Book 1 offers overviews of almost 100 orgs, and a number of in-depth profiles and essays on topics ranging from affordable spaces to feminism.

Book 2 offers overviews of almost 200 orgs, eleven hand-drawn maps, and a number of in-depth overviews on topics including Gay Liberation, black separatism, and church basements as countercultural command centers.

Book 3 offers overviews of about 100 orgs, ten hand-drawn maps, and a number of articles on topics such as environmentalism, the peace movement, and food coops.

From Operation Black to the Recycling Revolutionary Coop, it's all in here.
