Publisher Comments:

A founder of Columbia University SDS, and a veteran of the Civil Rights and anti-Vietnam War Movements, David Gilbert joined the Weather Underground Organization in the late m60's. After more than 10 years of clandestine resistance, he was captured in the course of an armed action in 1981.

David's discussion of these topics is freer, more alive, and more honest than any I have read. 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 ourhistory forward."
