On February 4th, 1974 Patricia Campbell Hearst was kidnapped from her Berkeley apartment. Two months later on April 15th the teenager of the famed Hearst family was witnessed aiding her captors in a bank robbery. It would be a year and a half later before Patty Hearst resurfaced when she was arrested by the FBI. Shana Alexander wrote this story of that ordeal from the outside looking in.

This is the third book of Shana Alexander's I've read and it is not quite on par with the other two. She admitted her newness to the trial reporter scene and essentially to the true crime genre. At times this book read as though I was on an open highway on cruise control and at other times it read as though I was stuck in traffic during commute hour: stop and go--I'd read a bit, take a nap, read a bit, get a snack, read a bit, get distracted by something else. The book was 70% modified trial transcript, 20% assessment and analysis, 8% autobiography/diary and 2% philosophy.

The principal problems were two: Shana Alexander's recentness to trial reporting and the fact she didn't have rights to "Patty Hearst". Given that to work with Shana became our eyes and ears of the trial with a few extra tidbits gleaned from interviewing various parties she could access during and after the trial.

The positives of reading a true crime book that details the trial is that you can be a juror yourself and determine guilt or innocence based upon the facts of the trial. The drawback of such a book is the dryness of it and the absence of crucial biographical information. The better true crime books are those in which all involved persons have been extensively interviewed so that the writer can create the atmosphere, detail relationships and personalities so that the reader has a more complete picture of not just the crime--but what ushered in the crime, what was its full impact and then the results. This book doesn't quite read like that but in certainly offers a lot of historic value in giving us something about the case surrounding Patty Hearst.

This is a very good book, not only for people interested in the history of the '60's and early '70's of the young people of this country, but people still curious in the bizarre and unique story of Patricia Hearst. There are so many psychological twists of the people who kidnapped her, and her (Patty) own thinking, it's no wonder outside observers saw Ms. Hearst as a willing participant in the S.L.A.'s crimes. Shana Alexander tries to get inside of Patricia's head, but she fell short of taking into account that Patty was only 19 years old, went thru a violent kidnapping and was "locked" in a closet under the contant fear of threats, degradational words and "voices of guns". I think what really bothered the author most was Patricia's untruth or half truth on the stand at her trial. Patty was just young, confused and scared, not really understanding (along w/most people) what "brainwashing" or coersive persuasion was or is.

Wonderful experience; book arrived as stated before the deadline date. Hope to do it again.

Shana Alexander was one of the reporters granted a permanent seat at Patricia Hearst's trial in San Francisco in 1976 (this writer had a semi-permanent seat and saw her there). Anyone's Daughter is Alexander's account of that trial. Like all reporters' accounts, it's compressed, and those who really want to understand the proceedings should obtain the commercially available rendition of the transcript [The Trial of Patty Hearst]. Alexander's account serves as a good supplement to that (she does things like describe the witnesses, what they were wearing, how they seemed to come across, &c.). So, the two books really go together, especially if the reader can get either one cheap. I rated Alexander's account "OK" because she does miss things (she was a TV "talking head" reporter working at the time as a commentator for "60 Minutes," and not a real investigative journalist). But, those truly interested in the case probably ought to obtain a copy of this book.

611 pages examining and interpreting what happened when a granddaughter of publishing powerhouse William Randolph Hearst (heiress Patty Hearst) was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army in 1974, and how and why it happened.

Put the world on hold while you take in: metaphors; Greco-Roman mythology; American history; perceptions and distortions about class, race, gender, psychiatry, wealth, privilege, dysfunctional relationships; the role of the media in shaping opinions; a myriad of political leanings; facades; and the strutting and posturing of her defense attorney (F.) Lee Bailey.

Why did Patty refuse to return home after the ransom demands were met? After she was captured and arrested by the FBI nineteen months later, why did she state her occupation as "urban guerrilla"? You get to decide, after reading this book.
