Sexplosion: How a Generation of Taboo Busters Remade Pop Culture - Robert Hofler

Great non-fiction read about the rise of taboo (thought to be during the time) Broadway shows and movies in the 60's and 70's and how those involved tried very hard to allow the public access to these creations, although they were breaking some laws during that time. Most were for shock and awe and not for any real artistic merit. My favorite sections were Hair, including the decision for nudity on stage, and that of Midnight Cowboy. Also Andy Warhol was once freak, obsessed with sex. He's not portrayed in a positive light here.

History movie and theater buffs will want to read this one. Chock full of great information.
