Dean Kuipers talked about his book Operation Bite Back: Rod Coronado’s War to Save American Wilderness (Bloomsbury USA; June 23, 2009). Mr. Kuipers provides a look inside the Animal Liberation Front, led by Rod Coronado, one of the most well-known “radical” environmentalists and founder of Operation Bite Back. The book also details the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s dilemma over whether to prosecute as terrorists animal activists who burned down animal laboratories rather than to continue to regard them as vandals. Mr. Kuiper also read passages from his book and responded to questions from members of the audience.
Mr. Kuiper is an editor at the Los Angeles Times and a former editor of Spin magazine and Los Angeles City Beat. He is also author of Burning Rainbow Farm. close
