Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0962276685, Paperback)On an apparently ordinary day in September 1980, an apparently ordinary woman carrying an apparently ordinary hammer did something extraordinary. This is the story of that woman and what she did, why she did it, and what happened as a result.
Molly Rush is a native of Pennsylvania. What she did occurred in Pennsylvania. The founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn, might have been pleased by the poetic justice - quite unintentional- of an attempt to begin nuclear disarmament in the state he had established three centuries earlier as a disarmed polity. That spiritually gifted, rebellious, adventurous Quaker man might have felt some kinship with the spiritually gifted, rebellious, adventurous Catholic woman who took a hammer to a nuclear warhead.
The tale told here links two acts of resistance to abuses of two kinds of power, two quite similar legal proceedings in two quite different courtrooms, two unrelated people in two widely divided times and places, two stories that ask the question "Why?" from the Prologue to Hammer of Justice - by Liane Norman
