The Flower Children and How They Grow

Richard Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 28 May 1967

Richard Goldstein is a young writer with a special view of the Flower Children and their contribution to modern American culture. He has been called by Time one of the best critics of the pop culture scene. Newsweek said he has 'avoided the conventional (and) created his own journalistic discipline.'
