This provocative volume explores how and why the word "patriot" has been appropriated by those who fight against the U.S. government—sometimes advocating violence in support of their goals. • Addresses the wide range of "patriot" groups currently active in the United States, covering their origins and current activities and what they reveal about America's political state • Profiles well-known patriot groups • Discusses the political, economic, and social dynamics that perpetuate the growth of these movements • Explores how and why such groups evolved from guardians of the principles of restrained government to proponents of radicalized violence against those they see as being in opposition to their beliefs • Overviews the congruence of patriotism and political violence in U.S. history, such as how disillusionment in the wake of the Civil War provided fodder for the forming of the Klu Klux Klan

Auch 30 Jahre nach den blutigen Ereignissen des »Deutschen Herbstes« hat das Phänomen RAF seine politische Brisanz nicht verloren. Nicht die erneute Aufarbeitung der RAF-Geschichte steht im Mittelpunkt dieses Bandes, sondern die Frage nach der Rezeption der terroristischen Gruppen und ihrer Gewalttaten in den Medien, der politischen Öffentlichkeit sowie der Kunst. Entgegen der vorherrschenden Tendenz einer isolierten Einordnung der RAF in die deutsche Geschichtsschreibung beleuchten die hier zusammengestellten Beiträge von Zeithistorikern, Politologen sowie Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaftlern das Thema nicht nur interdisziplinär, sondern auch aus einer international vergleichenden Perspektive und stellen Verbindungen zu den Niederlanden, Frankreich und Amerika her.

A startling history of the forlorn war between the Weather Underground and the FBI, based on interviews and 30,000 pages of previously unreleased FBI documents In the summer of 1970 and for years after, photos of Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Jeff Jones, and other members of the Weather Underground were emblazoned on FBI wanted posters. In Bad Moon Rising, Arthur Eckstein details how Weather began to engage in serious, ideologically driven, nationally coordinated political violence and how the FBI attempted to monitor, block, and capture its members—and failed. Eckstein further shows that the FBI ordered its informants inside Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) to support the faction that became Weather during the tumultuous June 1969 SDS convention, helping to destroy the organization; and that the FBI first underestimated Weather’s seriousness, then overestimated its effectiveness, and how Weather outwitted them. Eckstein reveals how an obsessed and panicked President Nixon and his inner circle sought to bypass a cautious J. Edgar Hoover, contributing to the creation of the rogue Plumbers Unit that eventually led to Watergate.

The 1970s were a complex, multilayered, and critical part of an era of profound societal change and an essential component of the decade before-several of the most iconic events of "the sixties" occurred in the ten years that followed. The Hidden 1970s explores the distinctiveness of those years, when radicals tried to change the world as the world changed around them. Essays trace the struggles from the 1960s through the 1970s, providing insight into the ways that radical social movements shaped American political culture in the 1970s and the many ways they continue to do so today.
