Very well preserved copy. Rare. ROVO: The Provo Movement (1965-1972) was directed by a playful Anarchist group which combined non-violence and absurd humor to create social changes. The name Provo was coined by Dutch sociologist Buikhuizen to describe in a condescending way, post-war disaffected dutch teens who spent their time provoking the authorities. The Theatrical street happenings organized by the Provos attracted huge crowds and often resulted in over-reaction by the Police. The group found great symphaty among the Amsterdammers and at one point obtained five seats on the City Council. Its ideas influenced urban planning, social housing and cultural life in general. It campaigned against marijhuana prohibition, air pollution from urban traffic congestion, and the tobacco industry and it created numerous anti-royal events and literature. Very good copy.
