    1. The true story of the life and death of Diana Oughton, a member of the Weather Underground and one of the casualties of their ill-conceived bombing campaign. Draws a sad picture of a group who had no idea how to achieve their aims, and finally destroyed themselves trying. For pete's sake, this couldn't even orchestrate a proper college-campus riot at the height of the protest era. The author deepens and widens the original picture of a life thrown away for nothing until the story seems almost Sh [...]

    2. I've read this book a few times already, but needed to refresh my memory for a current writing project. This book is valuable in understanding the radical movement of the late 1960s because it was published so quickly after Diana Oughton's death (she died in 1970, and the book was published in 1971). There's something about the immediacy that makes it a good source as a historical document. Analysis and hindsight also are useful, but it's good to have books that were published during that time p [...]

    3. I knew I had to track this down when I read about it in John Marr's MURDER CAN BE FUN, a great magazine that I think is now, sadly, defunct (except maybe online). I just can't get enough Weatherman books (Cathy Wilkerson's FLYING CLOSE TO THE SUN, Larry Grathwohl's BRINGING DOWN AMERICA, Susan Stern's WITH THE WEATHERMEN--loved 'em all) & this biography of Diana Oughton, who blew herself off the planet when she & 2 Weatherpals, attempting to build a bomb, blew up a NY townhouse belonging [...]

    4. One of those great little true crime/death/disaster books that I used to get at garage sales and intently read when I should have been reading something else for class. Engrossing tale about yet another idealistic youth dragged down a very wrong path via good intentions.Surprised the teabagger/birther nutcases haven't pulled more books like this out of the shadows for the namechecking of Bill Ayers, etc.
