Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No More Prisons On Urban Life, Homeschooling, Hip-hop Leadership, The Cool Rich Kids Movement, Community Organizing and Why Philanthropy is the Greatest Artform of the 21st Century. William Upski Wimsatt In this follow-up to the underground best-seller Bomb the Suburbs, William Upski Wimsatt The Hitch-hiker's Guide 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.

Synopsis:

Winner of the 2000 Firecracker Alternative Book Award for Best Book, Politics.

Synopsis:

Author William Upski Wimsatt covers a truly remarkable array of topics and perspectives, all while recounting his own evolution from idealistic urban wanderer to community organizer, from graffiti writer to renowned essayist. Wimsatt delivers stories, strategies, suggestions, straight talk, and conversations with maverick activists. He advocates youth taking charge of their own education, whether its in or out of school, and promotes the power of young people engaging in philanthropy. A truly original treatise from the paradigm-flipping theorist of youth activism, No More Prisons goes beyond pinpointing problems to hone in on solutions, and declares that todays youth is poised to surpass the activist efforts of the 1960s generation.
