really liked it

Read in March, 2008

Second read-through. Liked it just as much. Lots of good historical background about Vietnam War and SDS and corrupt national government. Set the scene well to explain motivations of "radical leftist" groups in USA.

Like the message about your actions being result not necessarily of your political or religious viewpoints, but of the people that you live among: the company you keep.

Makes me want to read much more about the 60s & 70s student protests. Reading this now after seeing Taymor's "Across the Universe" added to a greater understanding in my head of life in those days.
