Days of Rageby Mike Shepherd
Days of Rage is the story of Mick Scott who, after returning home from the Vietnam War in 1968, attends school on the G.I. Bill at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. There he makes the acquaintance of David Gordon, the director of the controversial Vietnamese Studies Center; controversial because it is rumored to be affiliated with the CIA.
Scott soon concludes it is no rumor when Gordon recruits him to infiltrate the local Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) in an effort to uncover a spy that has infiltrated the Center. As Gordon suspects, it is someone who is affiliated in some way (directly or indirectly) with the SDS.
As the mystery unfolds the author keeps track of the ongoing situation in Vietnam through a thesis Scott is writing for his master's degree.
All the while the author attempts to convey the lifestyles of those attending college in the turbulent times of the late 1960s and early to mid-1970s when the violent antiwar movement racked America's campuses.
