The threat and human cost of terrorism have not strayed from the minds of Americans since the attacks on the World Trade Towers.
But there was a time in the 1970s when bombings by domestic extremists groups were a daily occurrence. The groups behind these attacks went by such names as The Weather Underground, the Black Liberation Army, the Symbionese Liberation Army, and others.
Vanity Fair correspondent Bryan Burrough details the history of these groups and more in “Days of Rage.” The book contains interviews with members of these underground groups who have never spoken publicly before.
