Created and edited by Manuel Aceves, Piedra Rodante combined locally produced articles on music, politics, and the counterculture in Mexico with translated material from Rolling Stone magazine. The magazine was shut down by the Mexican government in early 1972 in a general crackdown on counterculture and political activity. Stony Brook University Libraries has received a donation from Dr. Luis Gonzalez-Reimann (University of California, Berkeley) of the existing eight issues of the influential, short-lived Mexican periodical Piedra Rodante, for which he served as Associate Editor and Music Critic. The eight issues of this magazine are quite rare. There are only three libraries in the world that have any copies, and the two in the U.S.— Harvard and University of Texas at Austin—only have a couple of issues each.
