Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The hearts and minds of the resisters emerge in the narrative, as we find out why these people found civil disobedience compelling, how they organized themselves, and what moral dilemmas they addressed as they fought for their convictions. While becoming more engaged in the resistance, they confronted critical issues in contemporary America: democratic decision making, environmental policy, legal rights, corporate responsibility, and the technology of nuclear waste.

Some of the book’s highlights include: conversations that took place between Governor Cuomo, Assemblyman Hasper, and the protestors, which thoughtfully probe who should bear the financial burden of a failed and dangerous technology; the scientific and technological issues discussed between Ted Taylor, a nuclear physicist who was one of the key people in the Manhattan project, and the leaders of the resistance; and the citizens’ initiation of a lawsuit that eventually reached the Supreme Court and abrogated the central provision in the 1987 congressional law that mandated states build low-level nuclear dumps across the country. These dialogues and vignettes illustrate how the civil disobedience and dogged determination of the people of Allegany County changed the course of history.

    Rare Book: Exciting and Informative

    LINKED ARMS is a truly rare book. It is as exciting to read as it is informative. Few novels are as exciting as this book--yet it truly makes one think about a truly serious environmental issue. The characters in the book are truly memorable. I am amazed that an ex-vietnam sergeant could cooperate with peaceniks! Or, that a hunter and outdoorsman who always wears camoflage could form a relationship with a college professor to practice civil disobedience. But most memorable is the sheriff of a rural county who is trapped between defending the law and defending his neighbors against the threat of a nuclear dump. But there are more famous characters, Mario Cuomo, the governor of New York State, and Ted Taylor, a nuclear physicist. And many, many more. I read this book in two evenings. I just couldn't put it down. I knew how it would turn out, because I read the preface, yet I couldn't put it down. (I really think that readers should NOT read the preface first--just get into the narrative and wonder how this exciting event will turn out. Anyway, I really recommend this book. Anyone who is interested in 1) environmental issues, or 2) grass-roots organizing, or 3) civil disobedience must read this book.
