My immediate problem with this book is that it glorifies a character that glamorizes rape and sexual violence The kind of behavior that James Carr boasts of throughout this book is exactly the kind of thing that would get any activist anarchist or punk exiled from an entire communitySo honestly despite a single clever insight into the nature of crime the ineffectiveness of the SF Black Panthers and a generally brutal expose' of prison life there is little value in this book I'm actually kind of disappointed in AK for publishing it without any kind of caveat anywhere in its pagesNo apologies are made for the series of murders assaults and rapes that Carr commits in every chapter He even beams with pride in an anecdote that details the brutal gang rape of a young white male that arrives at his prison in the California mountains Carr is seemingly given a free pass for being part of a group of 60's radicals What this book implies is that if you are part of an important enough movement no matter the role you played that you are not held responsible for your actions The free pass that Carr is given either reeks of double standards for others in the radical community or the gross paternalism of its poor African American protagonistSo honestly This might be the worst book in AK's amazing catalog
