I was around then, and I remember the accounts of the various communist, black racist, and revolutionary groups who took over university buildings, robbed, rioted, and murdered. SDS, Weather Underground, Black Panthers, Black Guerrillas, and the SLA. The latter were quite brave in kidnapping one middle class female, but very ineffective in fighting back with automatic weapons against police with pistols and semiautomatic weapons. Six SLA members had an arsenal with more than 6,000 rounds of ammunition. They fired thousands of rounds from automatic weapons but never shot one policeman. Talk about ineffective. Authorities recovered 17 guns and two pipe bombs from the house. SLA committed 2 murders and several bank robberies.
No, I will not pay $31 used or $74 new for this book. I may try it at the library. Wish there were more reviews, so I could get a sense of the story told here and how it matches with the facts. Is this some attempt to justify murder, robbery, and kidnapping in the name of revolution or does this book actually tell what occurred?

Back in 1976, while working on a term paper for a course at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, California, I had just seen the movie about Patty Hearst, aired on ABC. The movie was a propaganda piece that made this white woman look like the victim. The only survivor of a police manhunt, she was tahen allowed to spew forth her specious and spurious claims about being "Kidnaped" and "held against her will" and "raped." My analysis called into question all of these claims, but it was not until I came across a small black book called "The Life and Death of the SLA" that I found out what the group was about and how Patty Hearst had gotten mesmerized by the adventure. I used this book for much of my source material and now, some 25 years later, I am doing a re-examination. She's still guilty as sin, but now I will add some primary resources, since a few of the SLA members are still alive -- rotting in prison, of course.
This book is well written. And it goes into detail about how the police showed no mercy toward the SLA. The book makes it clear that the robbery of the Hibernia Bank was the work of masterminds, not sick revolutionaries. These brothers and siters set up a statewide program called PIN -- People in Need, and had major corporations putting together food baskets and distributing themm to people who needed the food. Does THIS sound like the work of people who were not organized?
The book goes into much detail about one issue that has gone overlooked: the role that then California governor Ronald Reagan played in fanning the flames of revolution when he said on TV that he hoped that the people who accepted the People in Need program food "got botulism." This must made the SLA even more committed to taking down the system, and they certainly made a dent in it.
This book is a spellbinder. What the media doesn't tell you will be unveiled within these pages. AMerica is a sick nation that claims to do no wrong, and when people come forward to say "we've had enough," this nation lowers the boom the way that it did on the SLA. The Black Panthers couldn't quite deal with the SLA because the SLA was serious about confrontation, conflict and the revolution -- the Panthers, for the most part, were media freaks, former pimps, punks and hos.

Familiar with the story .One member(killed in the shootout in1974) raised in same area as me,buried in same cemetary &very near my parents grave (in N.J.)wHENEVER Ivisit--,I put flowers on both graves.She had a promising future.My husband knew her mother(who died when she was a teenager) possibly contributed to her radical change.Getting married to a radical&moving to a radical area &school ,are to blame for what happened also.

This book had great insight into how the SLA was formed and operated. It is a peek into the extremes of the counter culture movement of the 1970s.
