Anderson and Hevenor include minute data about the children's wounds in the most pedantic police-reporter style. They are also tediously thorough about the exact arms that each Philadelphia cop carried into the fray. MOVE did have some vague goals, such as not following the dictates of a ""bunch of hemorrhoid-ridden old men in Washington, . The reason for its rebellion was that ""if they think that they had control over you, they could control your bowel movement, sexual drive, and all that. Although it goes on too long, the present book is a compilation of all the data that most readers will want (or need) to know about what happened in the Philadelphia bombing.

I read this book some years ago as part of the research towards my doctoral dissertation. Prior reviews are remarkably unfair of this book. It is one of the few well-written books about the second MOVE incident, and I say that as someone who has literally touched just about every piece of paper associated with both the first and second MOVE incidents in the archives of the City of Philadelphia. If you were to read one book about the second MOVE incident it probably should be this one.

Burning Down the House is childishly biased against the MOVE organization, and traffics in unnecessary snark and contempt. The snark doesn't clarify anything, expect to provide explicit contours of the authors' bias. It's also lacking in detailed citations, which, if you're going to write such a detailed account, really need to be there. If the reader can stomach the infantile bias, can correct for that bias in the assessment of the presentation of "the facts," then there's a lot in this book. But it takes patience. It's amazing that they got a lot of their childish snide commentary passed their editor.
