Rebels & Devils brings together some of the most talented, controversial and rebellious people of all time. Many - such as William S. Burroughs, Dr Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson and Aleister Crowley - are world famous. Others contributors, such as James Wasserman, S Jason Black and Peter J Carroll, are well-accomplished in their own fields. Still others are lesser-kwn - for w. But every contributor, in every article, in every aspect of their lives, has had but one focus: to bring freedom to their world. In all of human history the essence of the independent mind has been the need to think and act according to standards from within, t without.To follow one's own path, t that of the crowd. Inevitably it follows that anyone with an independent mind must become 'one who resists or opposes an authority or established convention': a rebel. Usually rebellion is done so quietly that one tices. But when others - especially others with power - recognise the disobedience, the rebel becomes the REBEL. And if eugh people come to agree with - and follow - the REBEL, we have a DEVIL. Until, of course, still more people agree. And then, finally, we have ...GREATNESS.
