Public Enemy: Confessions of an American Dissident

Cover of Public Enemy:  Confessions
Bill Ayers

When Barack Obama was questioned about his 'friendship' with former Weather Underground terrorist Ayers during the Democratic primary debate during the 2008 election, the University of Chicago Professor received death threats, hate mail, had many public appearances cancelled and more. This memoir covers mostly his post-Weather Underground days, including the arc of his adult life from childcare provider to graduate student to professor-- and is a follow-up to his earlier memoir Fugitive Days.
