                        Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long

                        On May 4, 1970, National Guard troops opened
                        fire on unarmed antiwar protesters at Kent State
                        University in Ohio, killing four students and
                        wounding nine others, including the author of
                        this book. The shootings shocked the American
                        public and triggered a nationwide wave of campus
                        strikes and protests. To many at the time, Kent
                        State seemed an unlikely site for the bloodiest
                        confrontation in a decade of campus unresta
                        sprawling public university in the American
                        heartland, far from the coastal epicenters of
                        political and social change.
