    • History

Daniel Chard is a professor of history at Western Washington University and the author of Nixon’s War at Home: The FBI, Leftist Guerillas, and the Origins of Counterterrorism. In this conversation, we both reflect on the different cultural and political forces that drew us to the American left in the 1990s, and how our politics have evolved in the decades since the heady days of freeganism, drum circles, anti-globalization protests, anarchist collectives, black bloc tactics, Ani DiFranco, and other key features of the “dream of the 90s.”
Check out Daniel’s first appearance on the show for a detailed discussion of his research on leftist violence and the FBI.
