Echoes of Combat by Fred Turner
Book DescriptionUsing psychological trauma as its guiding metaphor, Echoes of Combat is the first book to explore the parallels between the healing of Vietnam veterans and Americans' collective recovery from the war. Drawing on such diverse sources as films, novels, television series, political speeches, monuments, medical texts, and inside accounts of the men's movement, Fred Turner shows how the healing narratives of individuals have allowed us to transform our recollections of our aggression in Vietnam into tales of national sacrifice.

Details the story of a group of San Francisco Bay Area entrepreneurs - Stewart Brand and the Whole Earth network. While tracing the transformation of how our networked culture came to be, this book reminds us that the distance between the Grateful Dead and Google, between Ken Kesey and the computer itself, is not as great as we might think.
