Description

"A stunning and chilling expose of . . . the rise of the Symbionese Liberation Army and the kidnapping of bad-girl heiress Patty Hearst" (David Talbot, founder of Salon). Revolution's End fully explains the most famous kidnapping in US history, detailing Patty Hearst's relationship with Donald DeFreeze, known as Cinque, head of the Symbionese Liberation Army. Not only did the heiress have a sexual relationship with DeFreeze while he was imprisoned; she didn't know he was an informant and a victim of prison behavior modification. Neither Hearst nor the white radicals who followed DeFreeze realized that he was molded by a CIA officer and allowed to escape. His secret mission was to infiltrate and discredit Bay Area anti-war radicals and the Black Panther Party, the nexus of seventies activism. When that failed, DeFreeze was alienated from his controllers and decided to become a revolutionary, since his life was in jeopardy. The kidnapping of Hearst sparked one of the largest shootouts in U.S. history-which killed six members of the SLA in South Central Los Angeles-and ended when the LAPD set fire to the house and incinerated those six radicals on live television, nationwide, as a warning to American leftists. "A gripping read-a persuasive, well-researched and detailed interpretation of what is known about the SLA kidnapping of Patty Hearst." -Peter Dale Scott, author of The American Deep State "This book careens to its bloody ending with all of the inevitability of a train wreck. Schreiber . . . ignites the past in chilling detail and at the same time shines an uncanny and unsettling light on who we are today." -T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times-bestselling author
