Read from May 24 to June 20, 2012

This is such a classic collection of documents from the Weather Underground, a thorough history for those interested in learning from the recent past. The best part of the book, for me, were the introductions written by Dohrn, Ayers, and Jones. They frame the historical documents with an articulate analysis that makes the WUO mindset more accessible in the context of today's struggles. And it's amazing how similar the issues we/they were struggling with then are to the ones they/we are struggling with now. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting Bernardine and Bill at the People's Summit in Chicago this May, and was struck by how committed (and humble) they remain--living up to my sense of them as heroes from a difficult period in our history.
