The Underground Press

Also known as the Underground Newspapers, this series is described below by its publisher, UMI.
The radical movements of the 1960s spawned a multitude of underground newspapers. The causes they espoused or opposed were as diverse as the issues they confronted. It was the era of the Vietnam War, of opposition to corporate America and its power, of questioning and rejecting traditional values.

This unparalleled microfilm collection allows students and researchers access to more than 550 underground newspapers dating from 1963 to 1985 . . .

It is supplemented by materials from the Hoover Institution and the University of Missouri.
