Summary

"In nine chronological chapters, Rebels and Renegades covers the major events and personalities in the history of radicalism and extremism in the United States. Starting with the arrival of the Pilgrims in Plymouth in 1620 and ending with the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the work spans the spectrum of sociopolitical dissent, from the extreme right to the extreme left - with all shades in between."--BOOK JACKET.
