"Smoking Typewriters" -- how underground media was key to 60's revolutions

Speaking of OWS, has anyone read John McMillian's "Smoking Typewriters"? An inspiring book showing how underground media was key to the success of the many revolutions of the 1960's. It also has chapters showing how the 60's-style media segued into ZINES and then the Internet. Of course each aspect of the flow is still alive -- there still are political alt-newspapers (tho not as big) -- still zines (tho not as influential) -- still blogs. They're all still KEY to the success of revolutions. We just need the best of them to keep their wits, find their way and seize the day.
