“If you want to know what the '60s really were about, you'll find out between [these] covers.”—The Kansas City Star “[Thirsting for Peace in a Raging Century] restores Edward Sanders to his rightful place at the forefront of the poetry of his time, and reminds us that spending one's days in active pursuit of the betterment of all life on the planet isn't necessarily antithetical to the creation of first-rate writing.”—San Francisco Chronicle This American Book Award–winning collection begins with Edward Sanders' famous first "Poem from Jail," written in 1961 during his incarceration for disrupting the christening of a nuclear submarine, and covers the twenty tumultuous years that followed. Now back in print, this vital addition to all collections of contemporary American poetry and culture chronicles Sanders' literary, political, and rock 'n' roll adventures, as well as the joys of life in rural Woodstock, New York. A legend of the American counterculture, Edward Sanders' recent books include Poems for New Orleans and Let's Not Keep Fighting the Trojan War.

Ed Sanders's mock-heroic (and heroic) odyssey follows poet, filmmaker, and activist Sam Thomas, editor of Dope, Fucking, and Social Change, and a variegated cast of castoffs, dropouts, peaceniks, freakniks, and mendicant filthniks, from Kansas through the beatnik and hippie countercultures of New York City's Lower East Side and Greenwich Village. From the Freedom Rides and confrontations with the Alabama Klan to the "hate-dappled" Summer of Love, Tales of Beatnik Glory is the epic of America in the sixties, in a language of droll invention and stoned mythopoesis, from a man who once dared to exorcise the Pentagon. This revised edition adds two new volumes and includes twenty-five never-before-published stories
