Scholar Spotlight: Beverly Gage

  • Social Movements

A series of bombs mailed to people affiliated with the Democratic Party rattled the U.S. last week - but this isn't the first time something like this has happened in America. This week's spotlight highlights Beverly Gage, a historian who studies political history, including instances of anarchist bombings at the turn of the 20th century. She discussed her research on a 1919 spate of package bombs mailed to politicians in TIME Magazine, and she explains historical lessons from this recent incident.
