About the Author
In the early 1970's A. J. Weberman became a widely known counter-culture figure after he went through Bob Dylan's garbage. He coined the word "Garbology" to describe the journalistic technique of searching through trash for information and called himself a garbologist. He also invented Dylanology - another word he coined - which means the study of Bob Dylan's cryptic poetry. Weberman was the first to make the connection between Watergaters E. Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis and the Kennedy assassination. He was sued by E. Howard Hunt in an effort to shut him up. Hunt later confessed to his son that he was part of "the big event." Weberman was able to depose former DCIA Richard Helms, CI/SIG head James Angleton, G. Gordon Liddy, Bernard Barker and others. Weberman worked as a researcher for Sen. Richard Schweiker, (R-Pa) and as a Congressional researcher for Cong. Henry Gonzalez (D-San Antonio, Texas). Weberman has numerous political arrests including one for having tossed a tomato at former President Nixon. Weberman, along with I. D. Beal, was the founder of the Yippie Museum, an educational institution chartered by the Board of Regents of New York State. He is the subject of an award winning movie entitled The Ballad of A. J. Weberman.
His revolutionary circle included John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Jerry Rubin, Abbie Hoffman, David Peel, Tom Forcade, Aron Kay and Phil Ochs. Weberman's other books are Coup D'Etat in America, the CIA and the Assassination of JFK
co-authored by Michael Canfield, My Life In Garbology, The Dylan to English Dictionary, Homothug, The Secret Life of Rudy Giuliani, The Devil and Bob Dylan and A History of Islamist Terrorism in America.
