Jones is the son of former members of the Weather Underground and his family went into hiding for 10 years following an accidental bomb explosion in 1970 in Greenwich Village. His book is about anarchy, corporate greed and the violent protests of 1914, which have close parallels to the Occupy Wall Street movement of today.
