The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty HearstBook - 2016
On February 4, 1974, Patty Hearst, a sophomore in college and heiress to the Hearst family fortune, was kidnapped by a ragtag group of self-styled revolutionaries calling itself the Symbionese Liberation Army. The already sensational story took the first of many incredible twists when the group released a tape of Patty saying she had joined the SLA and had adopted the nom de guerre "Tania"...Based on more than a hundred interviews and thousands of previously secret documents, Toobin...recounts the craziness of the times, portraying the lunacy of the half-baked radicals and the toxic mix of sex, politics, and violence that swept up Patty Hearst.-- Adapted from dust jacket.
