A fascinating oral history of the social and cultural revolution in America in the '60s and beyond, as seen through the life of Abbie Hoffman and those who knew him.

Abbie Hoffman was at the center of most of the political and social tumult of the '60s, as a participant, disciple, instigator, leader, and dissident. He helped fight for civil rights in the South, organized on behalf of the poor in New York City, was the spiritual leader of the hippie generation from the Bay Bridge to the Brooklyn Bridge, and was one of the most vocal and visible counterculture guerrillas in the fight against the war in Vietnam. "Steal This Dream" is a captivating oral history of the era, told by more than 200 of those who demonstrated, protested, and lived through those tumultuous years.
