Editors Note A fresh look at newspaper heiress Patty Hearst and her trial delivers a nuanced portrait of both an unforgettable moment and an entire era by recreating the atmosphere of uncertainty and frustration of mid-1970s America.
Annotation Patty Hearst, media tycoon William Randolph Hearst's granddaughter, was a 19-year-old Berkeley student in 1974, when she was kidnapped by members of the Symbionese Liberation Army and held for ransom. Several weeks into her captivity, Hearst began to broadcast her sympathies with SLA, eventually joining them in bank-robbing sprees that lead to her arrest and conviction. William Graebner uses this incident as a jumping-off point for cultural analysis, arguing that, like Hearst, America experienced an identity crisis in the 1970s that resulted from Vietnam-era upheaval and led to the cutthroat confidence of the Reagan '80s.
