In 1969, Larry Grathwohl stepped out of his life and became, according to Time magazine, "the only FBI informant known to have successfully penetrated the Weather Underground." For a year, Grathwohl ran with America's most dangerous radicals. He watched them plan bombings, murders, and political assassinations. He moved in a world of Maoist brainwashing, drugs, and enforced sexual experimentation, with a gang of thugs dedicated to bringing down America. This book was first published in 1976. At the time, nobody could have imagined that the criminal leaders of the Weather Underground would elude punishment and rise to positions of authority in American public life. But today, they are influential professors, national leaders in K - 12 education "reform," and advisors to President Obama's Recovery Act. Grathwohl's story is now more important than ever. He exposes the network of American radicals, international terrorists, clergymen, journalists, and college professors who helped the Weathermen elude capture and continue to help in the cover-up of their crimes. On one occasion, his quick action averted the bombing of a Detroit police station - just one story you will find in this book that the former leaders of the Weather Underground would like to keep buried. Frank Reagan's long career in journalism began at the New York Daily Mirror. He rose through the ranks of reporting and editing positions with the Ottaway and Gannett newspaper chains and The Wall Street Journal before forming his own public relations agency. His numerous assignments included newspaper and magazine articles on such a wide range of topics as sports, investigative, and government reporting. He acted as editor and publisher of a monthly magazine for independent trucking companies and authored a book that covered the 25-year history of a continuing care facility. His clients were as diverse as the City of Montreal and the Rose Bowl Parade. A master writer and author, Frank found Larry's story so compelling that he immediately agreed to work him. Sadly, Frank passed away in 1993 at the age of 56.
