Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

"Dan Berger represents an emerging generation of radical activist scholars. A meticulously researched and well-referenced study of the Weather Underground. . . . A gripping story, drawing important lessons for the younger generation of activists."--Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of "Outlaw Woman: A Memoir of the War Years, 1960-1975"

"Outlaws of America" brings to life the motivations and actions of America's most famous renegades, who bombed their way into history. Through detailed and original research, Dan Berger offers a nuanced and compelling portrait of the group that risked everything in opposition to war and racism.

This explosive, engaging, and timely book uncovers the untold story of the Weather Underground, from its incendiary beginning to its tumultuous ending--never sparing a critical analysis of the group. Especially noteworthy is Berger's groundbreaking discussion of the infamous 1981 Brinks case, where former Weather Underground members allied with the Black Liberation Army in a failed robbery that resulted in the deaths of three men and the longtime incarceration of several activists.

"Outlaws of America" is culled from dozens of in-depth interviews with former Weather Underground members, as well as with civil rights activists, Black Panthers, Young Lords, and others--many of whom speak about their experiences publicly here for the first time. The book also features an extensive appendix including Weather Underground communiques, a chronology of actions, a collection of rare photographs, and current biographical sketches of many ex-Weather Underground members.

"Outlaws of America" is published at a time of surging interest in the history of the group, immediately following the release of the Oscar-nominated documentary entitled "The Weather Underground," of which "Outlaws" is the essential companion volume.

Dan Berger is a writer, activist, and PhD candidate at the University of Pennsylvania. A longtime anti-racism organizer, he is the co-editor of "Letters From Young Activists" (Nation Books, 2005).
