“The saga of Patty Hearst highlighted a decade in which America seemed to be suffering a collective nervous breakdown. Based on more than a hundred interviews and thousands of previously secret documents, [this book] … recounts the craziness of the times (there were an average of 1,500 terrorist bombings a year in the early 1970s). Toobin portrays the lunacy of the … radicals of the SLA and the … mix of sex, politics, and violence that swept up Patty Hearst, and re-creates her melodramatic trial”–Dust jacket flap.
