MAPPING OUT UTOPIA is a three-part look at the Boston area's 1970s counterculture, based on listings found in old countercultural directories and magazines.

Each volume of MAPPING OUT UTOPIA maps out a different part of the city. This thrilling conclusion to the series examines ten communities on the urban fringe: SOMERVILLE, BROOKLINE, NEWTON, WALTHAM, MEDFORD, MALDEN, CHELSEA, ARLINGTON, BELMONT and WATERTOWN.

This volume offers overviews of about 100 orgs, ten hand-drawn maps, and a number of articles on topics such as environmentalism, the peace movement, and food coops.

From the Polaroid Revolutionary Workers' Movement to the Institute for Psychoenergetics, it's all in here.

I sent book 3 of this project to a friend who recently moved to Brookline. She loves maps and mapping, and was thrilled to have this archive of people and places.
