From August 1969 to August 1970, America witnessed 9,000 protests and 84 acts of arson or bombings at schools across the country. Clara Bingham's unique oral history of that tumultuous time looks back at that moment when America careened to the brink of a civil war at home, as it fought a long, futile war abroad. Woven together from 100 original interviews, this book profiles the Weather Underground; Daniel Ellsberg, the former Defense Department employee who released the Pentagon Papers; and outspoken actress Jane Fonda, along with a host of activists, organizers, radicals, and resisters who manned the barricades of what has been called "the Great Refusal."
