Post Re: Cover Art
What do you consider the significance of this artist doing the cover art for the book? I see on the inside jacket that the artist is Lawrence Ferlinghetti. ::171

Post Beat poet
I don't know about the significance, but I find it very cool that a beat poet's painting is the cover for this book.

Dig that baby, you can see the beret'd narrator with sunglasses reading in deep tones, hear the acoustic bass drones, bongos pump, audience fingers snap off beat - yeah, snapping no clapping - smell the Gauloises, taste the Laphroaig... Yeahhhhh, real cool daddio! ::204

Ferlinghetti also owns City Lights bookstore in San Francisco which published this book. Well, I guess that explains the cover! ::04

Post Re: Beat poet
Having lived a number of years in the Bay Area and enjoyed more than a few hours at City Lights bookstore...it's a real pleasure to see Ferlinghetti so intimately tied to Chomsky's Interventions.

I think a history of the 1960s countercultural and political revolutionary movements would be terribly interesting utilizing these two compatriots as case studies. Both claim their own place in the tumultuous traditions of American Anarchism, offering unique (but not opposed) visions of the good society rooted in individual freedom, creativity and social justice.
