This site links to articles and commentary about the Unabom spectacle.
Of particular interest is
the role of media and public officials,
and an attempt to discover what the Unabomber's views really are.

Role of Media and Public Officials
Hints about the Unabomber's Views
- Unabomber's Manifesto, nicely formatted by Time-Warner
- Unabomber's Manifesto, full text in two linked files (may be too large for some WWW viewers)
- Condensed version of Unabomber's Manifesto
- Letters sent by the Unabomber
- Unabomber's letter to NY Times demanding publication of his manifesto
- Kirkpatrick Sale comments on the Unabomber's views
- Much has been written about the FBI giving copies of the Unabomber's
tract to University Professors to analyze (see, for example,
Scholars find no cludes in Unabom writings--SF Examiner 8/13/95).
Many professors contend that his arguments "are familiar to anyone with a background in political science" but
"rarely heard in the mainstream media".
This appears to be one of the Unabomber's main points:
that these ideas do not get wide circulation
(and are unknown to most people).
This is why he feels he needs to resort to such drastic actions.
