4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A. Woodley on June 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
I am surprised that no one has done a reivew on this yet. It is a great company piece to the other American Outlaw titles. The same cast of characters comes through but in essay form. Notable writers include Huber Selby Jr., Elridge Cleaver, and Kurt Vonnegut. You also get some very cool music related essays by Ray Charles and John Sinclair of the MC5. This selection is thinner than the others (which are fairly mammoth). That I would say is the only draw back but it's still close to 400 pages so it's not like you're being cheated. It's still a great deal for your money. For some reason, this edition wasn't as advertised as the others but don't let that shy you away. This is deffinetly a cool collection. Bottom line: get it before it becomes unavalible.

Got this book for school. Don't really like reading it but my English professor told us to get it for class. Came in every nice condition, no folds, no writing in the book, no nothing. Everything is perfect!
