Resumen del libro

With race and the police once more burning issues, this classic work from one of Americas giants of black radicalism has lost none of its prescience or power

The trial of Angela Davis is remembered as one of Americas most historic political trials, and no one can tell the story better than Davis herself. Opening with a letter from James Baldwin to Angela, and including contributions from numerous radicals and commentators such as Black Panthers George Jackson, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Seale and Erica Huggins, this book is not only an account of Angelas incarceration and the struggles surrounding it, but also perhaps the most comprehensive and thorough analysis of the prison system of the United States and the figure embodied in Angelas arrest and imprisonment'the political prisoner.

Since the book was written, the carceral system in the US has grown from strength to strength, with more of its black population behind bars than ever before. The scathing analysis of the role of prison and the policing of black populations offered by Angela and her comrades in this astonishing volume remains as relevant today as the day it was published.
