dc.description.abstract Abbie Hoffman was a radical social activist and revolutionary, who was part of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Youth International Party (Yippees). He is best known for being a prominent defendant in the Trial of the Chicago Seven, in which the defendants were charged with conspiracy to incite a riot during the protests of the Democratic National Convention in 1968. Interest in Hoffman was reignited by the release of an Adam Sorkin film, entitled "The Trial of the Chicago Seven" in 2020. This article discusses Abbie Hoffman'/s life, his beliefs, the significance of his radical activities, his life following the trial, and his death at the age of 52 in 1989.
