In 1974, Patty Hearst, the granddaughter of newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, was kidnapped from her Berkeley apartment by a radical political group known as the Symbionese Liberation Army. In the year and a half that followed, Patty Hearst the hostage became "Tania" the revolutionary, committing crimes on behalf of her supposed captors until her eventual arrest in 1975. New Yorker writer and CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin covers Hearst's bizarre saga in his new book, "American Heiress." We'll talk to Toobin about Hearst's kidnapping, her trial and the still debated implications of the case.
