Summary

For the first time, the reader will have access to an uncensored personal account of his anti-technology philosophy, which goes far beyond Unabomber pop culture mythology.

Author Biography

Theodore J. Kaczynski attended Harvard University, received a PhD in mathematics from the University of Michigan, taught at the University of California, Berkeley, and then moved to Montana where he attempted to live a self-sufficient life. Called a "domestic terrorist" and the "Unabomber" by the FBI, Kaczynski was convicted for illegally mailing bombs, resulting in the deaths of three people and the injury of 23 others. He now serves a life sentence in the supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.
Dr. David Skrbina, who teaches philosophy at the University of Michigan, Dearborn, introduces this volume and provides fascinating excerpts from his letters with a revolutionary for our times.
