Osha Neumann became involved in student activism while studying at
Yale, and returned to New York to found an anarchist street gang, the
Motherfuckers. Cited as influences by the Yippies and members of SDS,
the Motherfuckers were an anti-media media phenomenon simply because
their name could not be printed, and engaged in anarchist activities
such as forcing their way into the Pentagon and cutting the fences at
Woodstock. This thoughtful, funny and honest account of one man's
part in 60s counterculture is also an unflinching look at what it means today.
