A Bomb In Every Issue: How the Short, Unruly Life of Ramparts Magazine Changed America (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 3 weeks.


An account of the rise and fall of Ramparts magazine, which, for almost a decade in the 1960s, was a leading leftist publication, combining radical content, sophisticated design and public relations to shape political journalism. Featuring interviews with David Horowitz, Peter Collier, Adam Hochschild, Christopher Hitchens, Seymour Hersh, Noam Chomsky and others, this book situates the magazine amidst the student movement in Berkeley, the rise and fall of the Black Panthers and the Summer of Love, while assessing the magazine's impact on politics and the media.

Peter Richardson is editorial director at PoliPointPress, chair of the California Studies Association, and a lecturer at San Francisco State University. His publications include American Prophet: The Life and Work of Carey McWilliams and numerous essays on literature, language, politics, and media. He lives in Marin County, California.
