Reviews


“A superb chronicle….” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“In spellbinding fashion, Bryan Burrough’s Days of Rage brilliantly explicates one of the most confounding periods of recent American history—the era when a web of home-grown radicals and self-styled anarchists busily plotted the overthrow of the American government. Rarely has such a subject been matched with a writer and reporter of Burrough’s extraordinary skill. I could not put the book down; you won’t be able to, either.”
– William D. Cohan, author of House of Cards, Money and Power, and The Price of Silence

“A fascinating portrait of the all-but-forgotten radical underground of the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s. Burroughs gives us the first full picture of a secret world where radical dreams often ended in personal and political tragedy.”
– Beverly Gage, Yale University; author of The Day Wall Street Exploded

“Bryan Burrough gives the story of America’s armed underground revolutionaries of the 1960s and 1970s what it has long desperately needed: Clarity, levelheadedness, context, and reportorial rigor. He has sifted the embers of an essential conflagration of the counterculture, found within it a suspenseful and enlightening history, and told it in a way that is blessedly free of cant or point-scoring.”
- Mark Harris, author of Pictures at a Revolution and Five Came Back

“Bryan Burrough has delivered a terrific piece of research, reportage and storytelling. Those who lived through the period of America’s radical underground, as I did, will be amazed to learn how much they didn’t.”
– Paul Ingrassia, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Engines of Change and Crash Course
