A Bomb in Every Issue

by Peter Richardson

The New Press, hardbound, 247 pages, 2009

A Bomb in Every Issue: How the Short, Unruly Life of Ramparts Magazine Changed America tells the largely untold story of this hugely influential magazine that published from 1962 to 1975. Ramparts naturally had high-profile detractors like Time magazine, but the magazine's effect on the world was profound. A 1967 photo essay moved Rev. Martin Luther King to forcefully denounce the Vietnam War. And author Peter Richardson describes how Ramparts paved the way for muckraking independent outlets like Mother Jones and alternative newsweeklies around the country, eager to tell the stories that the corporate media was afraid to touch.
