Thai Jones: More Powerful than Dynamite

placeholderplaceholder

Our guest on Pathways today is historian and author, Thai Jones. Thai is familiar with protest and its consequences. Born while his parents were fugitives from justice, he went by a series of aliases until the age of four. His first book, A Radical Line:From the Labor Movement to the Weather Underground, One Family’s Century of Conscience, was a personal exploration of the history behind the experience. His new book is More Powerful Than Dynamite: Radicals, Plutocrats, Progressives, and New York’s Year of Anarchy, and it stems from his PhD work at Columbia University. Formerly a reporter for Newsday, he has written for a variety of national publications, ranging from the New York Times to Monthly Review. A graduate of Vassar College and the Columbia Journalism School, he lives in New York City.
