The Making of a Counter Culture

The Making of a Counter Culture: Reflections on the Technocratic Society and Its Youthful Opposition by Theodore Roszak

Half way between primary source and secondary source -- written in the 1960s, but by a professor.

About the conflict between how they were raised and how they were expected to act in technocracy's jobs (all designed for efficiency), the use of psychedelic drugs, Zen and its use and abuse and the willful misudnerstanding of it, the clash with Marxism and more. Interesting stuff. The lack of insight from the knowledge of how it turned out means, of course, that he presents what it really looked like at the time.
