The following table lists the page numbers in the source books (see previous page) for the quotations that are cited in the present book. Asterisks indicate quotations that would not be expected to occur in chronological order because they are later retrospections about the step of consciousness involved.
In addition to the sources listed above, a few quotations in the text are derived from additional sources. Quotations from A.J. Muste on pages 12, 20 and 26 are from Abraham Went Out: A Biography of A.J. Muste, by Jo Ann Robinson, Temple University Press, 1981, pages 21, 25, and 141 respectively, and the long quotation from Muste on page 26 is from Peace Agitator, the Story of A.J. Muste, by Nat Hentoff, Macmillan, 1963, page 16. The quotes on pages 8 and 11 from Helen Caldicott are from an interview with here published in the New Haven Advocate May 5, 1986. The quotes on pages 12, 23 and 24 from Martin Luther King Jr. are taken from his tribute to W.E.B. DuBois printed in Freedomways, 1968, Second Quarter, pages 104-111. The quotations from biographies of Bertrand Russell and Jane Addams on pages 18 and 21 are from The Life of Bertrand Russell by Ronald Clark, London, 1975 (page 603), and The Life and Legend of Jane Addams, by Allen Davis, New York, 1973 (footnote 435 on page 306).
5. In a scientific paper, The Role of Anger in the Consciousness Development of Peace Activists: Where Physiology and History Intersect (International Journal of Psychophysiology, 1986, 4: 157-164) I argue that "anger is the personal fuel in the social motor that resolves the institutional contradictions that arise in the course of history." In addition to autobiographical citations such as those in the present book, I examine the evolution of anger, beginning with anger that is triggered by attributes of the opponent (in rodents), to anger that is triggered by actions of the opponent (in primates), to anger that is triggered by injustice (in humans). Drawing on the work of J.R. Averill (Anger and Aggression: An Essay on Emotion, Springer, 1984), I conclude that most human anger is anger at perceived injustice, and that anger, rather than being a negative emotion, is one that often leads to positive results in interpersonal relations and in the processes of history.
6. My own experience with police-sponsored terrorism came during the Vietnam War when I was working as a journalist with the community newspaper Modern Times in New Haven. A series of terrorist bombings during the fall of 1969 against the headquarters of multi-national corporations culminated just before the largest of the national peace demonstrations in November. Mass media headlined the bombings and used them to dissuade people from going to the Washington demonstration because of the "danger of violence". The small group who did the bombings were then arrested after the demonstration and put on trial. Some were members of the "underground" newspaper called, appropriately, "The Rat." But the person who supplied the dynamite and the expertise never came to trial because he was a government agent. A similar event had happened the year before in New Haven where one of the leaders of the anti-war protest, a Black militant who was one of the "Seven Angry Men" was arrested for a plot to dynamite various public buildings. Once again the dynamite was supplied by someone working for the government. In those days, we came to assume that anyone who spoke about dynamite was a government agent.
