"An accessible yet wide-ranging historical primer about how mass imprisonment has been a tool of repression deployed against diverse left-wing social movements over the last fifty years. Berger examines some of the most dynamic social movements across half a century: black liberation, Puerto Rican independence, Native American sovereignty, Chicano radicalism, white antiracist and working-class mobilizations, pacifist and antinuclear campaigns, and earth liberation and animal rights. Berger's encyclopedic knowledge of American social movements provides a rich comparative history of numerous social movements that continue to shape contemporary politics. The book also offers a little-heard voice in contemporary critiques of mass incarceration. Rather than seeing the issue of America's prison growth as stemming solely from the war on drugs, Berger locates mass incarceration within a slew of social movements that have provided steep challenges to state power"--Provided by publisher.

Finally, a perfectly elucidated and cogently written explanation for the citizenry.
Please, pay very, very, very close attention to this book, then reflect upon the lawsuit, reported in foreign newspapers but not in any American news outlets, that a few years back false // precedent-establishing \\ legal cases were created and fraudulently entered into the two major legal databases - - and hopefully enlightenment will occur.
