Book review

Mark Lane's report on what he saw and experienced in Chicago during the national Democratic convention in August, 1968, is above all a personal document. It is the hour by hour, day by day record of one who shared those violent days at the side of those against whom violence was directed. Several "firsts" emerge from this story of an unprecedented event. What happened in Chicago represented a change in the direction of American politics. It marked a change in the history of poplar movements in this country. It could well have been a catalyst for all youthful protest and demands by youth for active participation in the workings of their own democracy. It may prove to have been a significant turning point in our national history. This then is also a warning of what we might come to be. In this sense, Mark Lane's eyewitness report of the Chicago convention riots may contain even greater impact than his major best seller Rush to Judgment. In this book, rather than dissect the assassination of a President, he dissects what he feels to be the assassination of the American right to petition our legislators for redress. He dissects it with feeling. He dissects it from the standpoint of a shocking personal experience. And he dissects it with the legal mind and the reporter's eye. -- http://www.marklane.com/
