"""On the Ground""serves as a valuable contribution to countercultural history." --Paul Krassner, author, "Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counterculture"
"""On the Ground" "serves as a valuable contribution to countercultural history." Paul Krassner, author, "Confessions of a Raving, Unconfined Nut: Misadventures in the Counterculture""
"One should not underestimate the significant value of this book. It gives you real insights into the underground press and its vast diversity of publications, which translated into a taste of real people's power." Emory Douglas, former Black Panther Party Minister of Culture and graphic artist"
"The Underground Press, as it was called, was a groundswell of media activity running the gamut from radically political to seriously satirical. A new book, "On the Ground: An Illustrated Anecdotal History of the Sixties Underground Press in the U.S.," edited by Sean Stewart, recalls the Underground epoch." www.imprint.printmag.com"
"The striking graphics and compelling recollections in this text are at once a popular history and an inspiration." www.CounterPunch.org"
"If you are an old underground fan like I am, the pictures here will knock you out. Full page spreads from the Barb or the Seed or Rat. . . . And the drawings: My god, there are a couple here by Crumb that in the not-so-stoned 21st century could get you locked up in the gray-bar hotel. We're surprised that PM had the guts to publish them." "RALPH magazine," www.ralphmag.org"
"This book offers a window into the ferment of the underground press through a combination of short interview excerpts in which prominent figures of the underground press reflect on their experiences in producing their work together with photo-reproductions of text and images." "Book News" (August 2012)"
""On the Ground" deals with the sacredness of human life, examines the moral courage of direct action during the civil rights movement, and illustrates how journalism became a lifestyle of total immersion, both political and cultural." www.jamaica-gleaner.com"
