Overview

A white, working-class revolutionary, Sam Melville’s guerrilla bombings set in motion a flood of armed radical actions across the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Once imprisoned, Melville became a key organizer and a crucial element of the notorious Attica prison riots, uniting prisoners across racial barriers and making the ultimate sacrifice for revolutionary change. Tracing his short life and rapid political development, this book highlights a much-needed example of an undying and uncompromising struggle for justice and liberation.
