Come Together

"Stands out as one of the few books that don't want to deify, dish the dirt about or otherwise exploit the slain former Beatle. A sympathetic documentary history of Lennon's political thinking (which went through many phases), "Come Together" says that during the counterculture's flowering, rock music had real clout in the American political arena. Certainly some government officials thought so, or they wouldn't have initiated deportation proceedings after Lennon aligned himself with the activist left." --Stephen Holden, New York Times Book Review.

"When history professor Jon Wiener made a Freedom of Information request to the federal government for the late John Lennon's file, he could hardly have hoped for a richer payoff." --Time Magazine.

"Just when you might have thought there was nothing new to say about the late John Lennon, the ex-Beatle, and Richard Nixon, the ex-president, comes a new story . . . about both." --Dan Rather, CBS Evening News.
