Witness to the Revolution
A gripping oral history of the centrifugal social forces tearing America apart at the end of the '60s—Nixonian corruption, the war in Indochina, the Black Panthers, psychedelic drugs, Cointelpro, youthquake, domestic terrorism—with recollections by Bill Ayers, Jane Fonda, and Carl Bernstein, among others. This is rousing reportage from the front lines of U.S. history.
