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. This thrilling conclusion to the series examines ten communities on the urban fringe: SOMERVILLE, BROOKLINE, NEWTON, WALTHAM, MEDFORD, MALDEN, CHELSEA, ARLINGTON, BELMONT and WATERTOWN.
This volume 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 the Polaroid Revolutionary Workers' Movement to the Institute for Psychoenergetics, it's all in here.
