About the Author
David Gilbert appeared in the Academy Award-nominated film The Weather Underground and is the author of No Surrender. He is incarcerated in the Clinton Correctional in Dannemora, New York. Boots Riley is the former leader of the Coup, a music group declared "the best hip-hop act of the past decade" by Billboard magazine. He formed a new group, Street Sweeper Social Club, with Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine. He lives in Oakland, California.

"Gilbert adds heart and bone to the stuff of history."
--Mumia Abu-Jamal

"Required reading for anyone interested in the history of radical movements in this country. An honest, vivid portrait of a life spent passionately fighting for justice. In telling his story, Gilbert also reveals the history of left struggles in the 1960s and 70s, and imparts important lessons for today's activists."
--Jordan Flaherty, author of Floodlines: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six

"David's is a unique and necessary voice forged in the growing American gulag, the underbelly of the 'land of the free, ' offering a focused and unassailable critique as well as a vision of a world that could be but is not yet--a place of peace and love, joy and justice."
--Bill Ayers, author of Fugitive Days and Teaching Toward Freedom

"Like many of his contemporaries, David Gilbert gambled his life on a vision of a more just and generous world. His particular bet cost him the last three decades in prison, and whether or not you agree with his youthful decision, you can be the beneficiary of his years of deep thought, reflection, and analysis on the reality we all share. If there is any benefit to prison, what some refer to as 'the involuntary monastery, ' it may well look like this book. I urge you to read it."
--Peter Coyote, actor, author of Sleeping Where I Fall

"This book should stimulate learning from our political prisoners, but more importantly it challenges us to work to free them, and in doing so take the best of our history forward."
--Susan Rosenberg, author of An American Radical
