      The online Rexroth texts mentioned below, though mostly about San
      Francisco culture during the 1960s, include several articles on
      Buddhism and more or less related themes (meditation in the woods,
      Oriental arts, nonviolent action, etc.).

      Kenneth Rexroth's San Francisco newspaper and magazine columns are now
      online at http://www.bopsecrets.org/rexroth/sf .

      Sometimes chatty, sometimes scathing, but always provocative, Rexroth
      examined every facet of San Francisco's cultural and political life
      as it was happening during the pivotal period from 1960 to 1975.
