About the Author
BERNARDINE DOHRN is currently the director of the Children and Family Justice Center, and clinical associate professor at Northwestern University School of Law’s Bluhm Legal Clinic.
In his past decade as an environmental activist, JEFF JONES campaigned to get PCBs out of the Hudson River, clean up toxic pollution in inner city and rural neighborhoods and reverse global warming. Raised a Quaker, he became a spokesman for the Weather Underground. After his arrest and release in 1981, Jones was a reporter for the Guardian newspaper, covering the environment, the AIDS epidemic, the Central American wars and activist political movements. In 1985 he edited Brigadista, politics and war in Nicaragua, a book about North American solidarity with the Sandinista Revolution. He currently consults on political and media strategies for grassroots, progressive and labor groups.
Top Customer Reviews
Physically, this book looks great. The cover design is attractive due to its minimalistic nature and it certainly looks good on a shelf next to other similar books documenting the turbulent period of 1965-1975 (see Flying Close to the Sun: My Life and Times as a Weatherman by Cathy Wilkerson, also published by Seven Stories Press). The only negative is that the binding is a bit weak, tending to easily split down the middle with one read and leave vertical creases on the spine, though the sewn pages hold together. This is unacceptable for a paperback costing $19.95.
Sing A Battle Song is an indispensable book for the serious student of the Weather Underground and the New Left radicals of the Baby Boomer generation who conceived it; and even though I categorize these individuals as socially destructive and intellectually perverted, this book is a highly recommended resource.
