Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to the underground best-seller Bomb the Suburbs, William Upski Wimsatt's No More Prisons expands its focus out of culture and into politics. Hybridization is favored over ideology, with an emphasis on democracy and community-empowerment through a new theory of development. A truly original document from the paradigm-flipping master of modern praxis.

Description:

Featuring: Urban Life, Home-Schooling, Hip-Hop Leadership, the Cool Rich Kids Movement, a Hitchhiker's Guide to Community Organizing, and Why Philanthropy Is the Greatest Art Form of the 21st Century!
