Published in San Francisco by City Lights Books, 1961. History: The vision of the world expressed by many Beat writers was often apocalyptic. With the recent catastrophic World War, the exposure of the hideous hate crimes of the German Nazis, and the use of two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, many people were left with a very negative view of human potential and human prospects. It was clear that all beings needed protection from almost certain doom. The Beats found their answer in new, often shocking programs for human relationships and thought. Museum Purchase
