The temporal focus of my paper is from 1964 to 1971. I choose 1971 as my ending point because the youth movement had changed dramatically by 1971. I am concerned with how the "underground press" phenomenon formed, developed, and was related to the mass democratic youth movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The cultural and political radicals did not existent independent of one another. One of the places they came together was the "underground press." 1970-1971 will be my primary ending point because of the disillusionment and burnout suffered by many of the pioneers in the "underground press" and the larger movement.
