Sing a Battle Song : The Revolutionary Poetry, Statements, and Communiques of the Weather Underground 1970-1974
by Bernardine Dohrn and Bill Ayers and Jeff Jones




Overview -
Outraged by the Vietnam War and racism in America, a group of young American radicals announced their intention to bring the war home. The Weather Underground waged a low-level war against the U.S. government through much of the 1970s, bombing the Capitol building, breaking Timothy Leary out of prison, and evading one of the largest FBI manhunts in history.
Sing a Battle Song brings together the three complete and unedited publications produced by the Weathermen during their most active period underground, 1970 to 1974: The Weather Eye: Communiqu s from the Weather Underground; Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism; and Sing a Battle Song: Poems by Women in the Weather Underground Organization.
Sing a Battle Song is introduced and annotated by three of the Weather Underground's original organizers--Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, and Jeff Jones--all of whom are all still actively engaged in social justice movement work.
Idealistic, inspired, pissed-off, and often way-over-the-top, the writings of the Weather Underground epitomize the sexual, psychedelic, anti-war counterculture of the American 1960s and 1970s.
