Auteur: Hauser, Luke
Titel: Direct Action
Sub titel: An historical novel

Well, this is technically fiction, in so far as the mythic narrator is a composite of very real people. And everything else in this book is very real. It is the history of nonviolent protest in California in the early 80s, which developed the art of direct action to a peak not reached again until Seattle in 1999, with more than 7,000 arrested. While the names are all 'fake', everything else described herein is very real, including the dates, actions, locations, names of affinity groups, protests, arrests. It is an incredible history, of an incredible time, packed with more than 300 photos and images from the Livermore Action Group's archives, flyers, and a 35 page direct action handbook. Can't really get more real than that! Through affinity groups, and the collective process, a community of Northern Californian activists helped lay siege to the Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, Vandenberg Air Force Bsae, Concord Naval Weapons Station, Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, and the San Francisco Financial District. A truly inspiring and action-packed tale, in a format which really helps bring this monumental history to life.
