Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties (Culture, Politics, and the Cold War) - Thomas M. Grace

My latest podcast is up on the New Books Network website! In it I interview Tom Grace about his book on the infamous Kent State shootings in May 1970 and the events that led to them. Though I didn't review the book, it was an interesting one, not least because Grace was one of the victims that day and infuses his book with the familiarity born of the intimate knowledge of the campus and its culture at that time. Enjoy!
