Details: In the 1970s, Patty Hearst, the young heiress to the Hearst family fortune, was kidnapped by renegade leftist revolutionaries. Best-selling author Jeffrey Toobin recounts the controversial period during which Ms. Hearst became an ardent supporter of her captives’ cause and was prosecuted in one of the most ludicrous trials in American legal history.
