Jeffrey Toobin joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss AMERICAN HEIRESS.

Watch the video.

Patty Hearst’s abduction in 1974 gripped the nation. The Symbionese Liberation Army, a small group of left-wing revolutionaries, kidnapped the newspaper heiress in California. But what seemed like a simple abduction turned into something much more complicated. The story is chronicled in a new book by The New Yorker‘s Jeffrey Toobin, called AMERICAN HEIRESS: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst.
