Season of The Witch, by David Talbot, gives a┬áhistory of San Francisco from 1967 to 1982 in 406 pages. Published in 2012, it borrows the title of Donovan’s hit from 1966 which alludes to times of social upheaval. ┬áDuring that period, San Francisco was the epicenter for two social movements, the first being the hippies of the 1960’s counter-culture and the second being the gay rights movement, also starting in the 60’s, but taking off in the 1970’s.
