About this product
- DescriptionThe memoir of a white middle-class girl from the suburbs who became a terrorist - a bomb-maker for the Weather Underground - and then came to learn lessons from the 1960s that other radicals may t necessarily have cottoned on to. Wilkerson, who famously blew up and escaped from her parents' Greenwich Village townhouse, wrestles with the contradictions of a revolutionary movement: the absence of women's voices; the incompetence and the egos; the hundreds of bombs detonated in protest, taking lives without ever causing revolutionary foment.
