Ramsey Kannan is a principal figure within PM Press, the publisher of West of Eden, and has a long involvement in independent publishing and activism. The book charts the remarkable flowering of communalism in the 60s and 70s, fueled by a radical rejection of the Cold War corporate deal, utopian visions of a peaceful green planet, the new technologies of sound and light, and the ancient arts of ecstatic release. The ideas expressed in the book will be presented in the context of present UCD cooperative communities.
