Professor Peter Andreas talked about his book Rebel Mother: My Childhood Chasing the Revolution, in which he recalls his mother’s transformation from a Kansas housewife in the 1950s to a political radical on the run with her son from the late 1960s to the early 1980s. In his book, the author reports that his mother kidnapped him and took him across the country and into South America as she engaged in many of the era’s political movements. close
