About Bryan Burrough
Bryan Burrough is a special correspondent at Vanity Fair magazine and the author of five books, including the #1 New York Times Best-Seller Barbarians at the Gate and the best-selling Public Enemies: America’s Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933-34. He is also a three-time winner of the prestigious Gerald Loeb Award for Excellence in Financial Journalism.
Burroughs most recent work, Days of Rage: America’s Radical Underground, released in April 2015, provides a never-before-told narrative history of the six major underground groups of the 1970’s who were dedicated to the violent overthrow of the American government. Burrough re-creates an atmosphere that seems almost unbelievable just forty years later, conjuring a time of native-born radicals, most of them “nice middle-class kids,” smuggling bombs into skyscrapers and detonating inside inside the most risky—if not unsuspecting—places, from the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol to a Wall Street restaurant packed with lunchtime diners. Days of Rage is filled with important revelations and fresh details about the revolutionaries, their connections, and the FBI’s desperate efforts to make the bombings stop. The result is that takes readers into the hearts and minds of homegrown terrorists and federal agents, alike. A spellbinding secret history of the 1970s.
