Written by John Bassett McCleary, edited by Joan Jeffers McCleary.
John is also quoted extensively in the article, “40 Years On From 1967: Like It Or Not, You’re A Hippy!” (the British spelling), in the June 2007 issue of Reader’s Digest United Kingdom (www.readersdigest.co.uk).
Marianne Costantinou of the San Francisco Chronicle says, “The Hippie Dictionary...is a must for any bookcase, whether you experienced the times or not.”
Duncan Campbell in an article in the Guardian about The Hippie Dictionary says, “although the term 'hippie' is lodged in a particular era, it is interesting to see how often it still crops up.”
