9 Counter Cultural Books

The word counterculture generally refers to any movement that strives to achieve ideals counter to those of contemporary society. While counterculture itself is not a genre per se, the concept has intertwined itself into numerous fictional and nonfictional accounts of the 20th century and beyond. From the hippie rebellion of the 1960s to the persistent struggles of minority groups for equality, these books embody counterculture each in their own way, each with their own take on an ideal society.
