    Hi there Slave.

    I have a few on my shelf that you should check out.

    The Age of Great Dreams, by David Farber. Its not solely on the hippies, but is rather a more historical look at the rights movements, the counterculture, and the events of that era in relation to the America of the 30's, 40's and 50's.

    The Making of a Counter Culture by Theodore Roszak. I'd not call this one a history text, but instead a historical text. He wrote it in 1968, and had his finger on the pulse. while it was happening.

    The Hippies and American Values by Tim Miller, this one outlines the changing nature of the ethical and moral discourse with a highlight on the hippy as a formative figure in the change.

    The best of the best that I've read has to be the anthology Toward Social Change: a handbook for those who will. Edited by Robert Buckhout and 81 concerned Berkeley students. Unfortunately its anything but a handbook. More like a coffee table book in size. Its a collection of essays relating to everything you could ever want to know about the counterculture.

    Hope this helps a bit. Good luck and good reading.
