About this book



Toronto's Rochdale College began as an educational ideal, an experiment in living and learning, a place where open classes and unstructured seminars could liberate higher education from its shackles. Rochdale ended after seven incredible years in drug raids, overdoses, and police surveillance, but it is remembered as Canadas most controversial symbol of the 1960s. The fascinating story of Rochdale's rise and fall is told in this well-researched, entertaining book.
