No other book has the fine detail of every single group and radical action of the period. The author treats the victims of the violence of the era with great respect and empathy and exposes the fraud and duplicity of many of the groups at hand. He also gives chilling details of those groups that were not just playing. A must for anyone interested in the 1970s. Ray Porter is an outstanding reader.

Packed with details and low on judgements this is a a fascinating account of a different age of strife. Well worth listening to twice.
This book was very eye opening. It's a very different historical perspective to what I knew from pop cultural histories of the 60s and 70s and helped me to understand how the right wing hysteria over all and any progressive liberal ideas was founded. It's also fascinating to see how the extreme left wing and extreme progressives talked themselves into an ideological trap where they justified their terroristic tactics to themselves. The narrative is very clearly laid out and explains how political and ideological developments led groups into insurgency.
