Summary

«Una audaz radiografía sobre los movimientos contraculturales en México en voz de uno de sus mayores exponentes. 190 páginas llenas de salvajes historias de rebeldía, ingenuidad, incorrección, desmadre, lucidez, arte, literatura, drogas, punks, darketos, jipitecas, cholos, chavos banda, sexo y rockanroll. Pero, sobre todo, [este libro] reivindica la dignidad de no estar de acuerdo con "el poder" y la vigencia de esa entelequia que se llama “contracultura”» —Carlos Martínez Rentería, fragmento del prólogo
 
La contracultura en México se desplaza entre varios géneros, cubriendo los grandes movimientos y las manifestaciones contraculturales más importantes que ha tenido nuestro país, tales como los pachucos, los existencialistas, las pandillas juveniles o el rockanroll. En esta obra alucinante, el autor también da cuenta de las expresiones juveniles que han incidido en la música, la literatura, el teatro, el cine, la gráfica, la televisión y las publicaciones.
 
El lector hallará excelentes herramientas para analizar la realidad, así como datos indispensables para leer y comprender los tiempos y las manifestaciones que han enfrentado a la cultura predominante.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

“A bold x-ray about counterculture movements in Mexico, in the voice of one of its greatest figures. One hundred and ninety pages filled with wild stories of rebellion, ingenuity, impropriety, rampage, lucidity, art, literature, drugs, punks, darks, Mexican hippies, cholos, gangs, sex, and rock ‘n’ roll. But above all, [this book] vindicates the dignity of disagreeing with ‘power’ and the validity of that entelechy called ‘counterculture.’” —Carlos Martínez Rentería, excerpt from the prologue

Mexican counterculture traverses several genres, covering the great movements and the most important counterculture manifestations our country has seen, such as pachucos, existentialists, teen gangs, and rock ‘n’ roll. In this hallucinating work, the author also gives account of the youthful expressions that influenced music, literature, theater, movies, graphic art, television, and publications.
 
The reader will find outstanding tools to analyze reality, as well as indispensable data to read and understand the times and the different manifestations that confronted mainstream culture.
