There has been a recent spate of books about radicals of the 1970s, doubtless a soothing counterpoint to our own continuing conflicts: "Surely, this too shall pass." Now we have Jeffrey Toobin's account of the 1974 Patty Hearst kidnapping.
As if to bolster this claim, in early chapters Toobin relates that Jane Pauley, in college, once was rescued from the attentions of a creep by a fellow coed who later went on to be one of Hearst's kidnappers; that the documentarian Errol Morris, in his student days, attended a dinner party at a pre-kidnapped Patty Hearst's apartment; that another future Hearst kidnapper, while behaving recklessly on a shooting range, attracted the notice of none other than future O.

Pundits prefer turning those over-oxygenated years into a kind of exotic folklore: Twiggy, the Beatles, Timothy Leary, Godard, Vietnam, Huey Newton, the Weather Underground, Patty Hearst. The mosaic of moods and movements that colored and shaped that period are flattened and made safe for our collective consumption.
It was just a few years after the Western World had been astonished by the phenomenon of Patty Hearst - the teenage heiress who was kidnapped by terrorists but then decided to join their cause.

There is also a fascinating account of Fortunate Eagle's role in the Patty Hearst saga, but the book is not all civil-rights battles or stories that carry historical significance; there are many that simply aim to entertain, even as they illuminate "Indian wisdom." As if readers were sitting and listening to Fortunate Eagle around a campfire or at a powwow, his voice comes through as intimate and genuine, and even though this means dialect usages that are occasionally a bit strange, grammatical errors like using "drug" for "dragged," or jokes that sometimes misfire, they add to the overall experience nearly as much as they detract.
In his book 'Beyond the Possible: 50 Years of Creating Radical Change in a Community Called Glide,' Reverend Williams lays out the lessons he's learned from events, including the civil rights movement, the Harvey Milk assassination and the Patty Hearst kidnapping, and encourages readers to embrace their true selves, and accept all those around them.
As most are aware, I spent almost all my daily newspaper career at the San Francisco Examiner, which in the wake of Patty Hearst's kidnapping had guards at the front door to keep the community out, so I find the notion of outreach foreign at best.
"This dog is my Patty Hearst," he quips, "except I'm not going to bag it, keep it in a closet, and make it rob a bank." Seven Psychopaths falls agonisingly short of In Bruges but is nevertheless an entertaining ensemble piece, which aims a shotgun squarely between the eyes of political correctness.
"This dog is my Patty Hearst," he quips, "except I'm not going to bag it, keep it in a closet, and make it rob a bank." Farrell is somewhat bland as the Irish lead, but Walken, Rockwell and Harrelson savour their colourful supporting characters, whose fates become inextricably entwined in the desert.
