"[Bakke] serves up this slice of history with delicious let-me-tell-you-a-story gusto."

--Seattle Times

"A delightful portrait of Seattle's radical history and the characters involved."


"A compelling book about a compelling chapter in Seattle's political history."

--Seattle Star

"Protest on Trial chronicles a significant, real-life slice of history, but it reads more like a well-crafted novel--a compelling narrative that feels completely contemporary, and reminds us that dissent--now no less than then--is the essence of democracy.

--Bill Ayers, author of Fugitive Days, Public Enemy, and Demand the Impossible!

"Using impressive interviews as well as the revealing trial transcript, this excellent narrative of the Seattle 7 conspiracy trial makes contributions to the history of the Northwest, Seattle, radicalism, and activism. The book performs a valuable service in preserving both the memories and contemporary evidence about the long overlooked 1970 trial."

--William Rorabaugh, University of Washington Professor of History, author of American Hippies
