Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that positions be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time. In this sense the most difficult challenge facing the activist is to respond fully to the needs of the moment and to do so in such a way that the light one attempts to shine on the present Will simultaneously illuminate the future."

— from the Introduction

"Davis is an articulate and powerful analyst of contemporary culture." — San Francisco Chronicle

"A veteran radical's feisty Views from the barricades...Davis's integrity here will inspire many." — Kirkus

"Behold the heart and mind of Angela Davis: open, relentless, and on time! She is as radiant, she is as true, as that invincible sunrise she means means means to advance With all of the faith and all of the grace of her entirely devoted life." — June Jordan

The writings in this book are a collection given by Ms.Davis. She dealswith a number of topics such as thespiraling arms race,the role of womenin present day politics,South Africa'sapartheid goverment,modern day feminists.In particular the speech given to graduating seniors at Berkley High sheurges them to continue the activism ofthe sixties not to lose sight of thesacrifices of her generation. I have read this book a number of timeseach time I read it I find something Ihad previously overlooked. I have tremendous respect for thisremarkable woman and her committment toher values. Messers Nixon and Reagen labled hera dangerous woman. Do you need a betterreason to embrace the wisdom of AngelaDavis?
