March 29, 2011 — Peter Richardson discusses his book, “A Bomb in Every Issue: How the Short, Unruly Life of Ramparts Magazine Changed America.” Richardson’s study follows the birth, life, and death of this San Francisco magazine that during the depths of the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 1970s revived American muckracking and became a home for contributors like Seymour Hersch, Noam Chomsky, Bobby Seale, and Tom Hayden, among many others.
