Kirwin R. Shaffer - Associate Professor of Latin American Studies, Penn State Berks

Book Title: The Great Shark Hunt: Strange Tales from a Strange Time (Gonzo Papers, Vol. 1)

Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Book Description:

Given to me by my freshman English comp teacher, this book opened my mind to the wild, take-no-prisoners anarchy that would inspire my future interest in radical critiques of capital and the state. As Hunter says, in the best tradition of the anarchists, "Beware the flag suckers. They will run you down and eat your flesh but not your heart or your brain, for they are unclean."
