FROM THE PUBLISHER - ‘Dellinger, oldest and most widely known and respected among the ‘Chicago Seven,’ has collected his political essays from as far back as 1943 in this volume. He is plainly a man who practices what he preaches, and these essays show a consistent line of intellectual growth, comprising one of the clearest and most forthright statements of New Left principles available.’ Publishers’ Weekly. Here is a comprehensive collection of essays which reveal the mind and thought of a man who for the past thirty years has been an active participant in the antiwar and black liberation movements in this country. From eyewitness reports on North Vietnam and Cuba to personal testaments from jail, these essays, many of which originally appeared in Liberation magazine, reflect the variety and depth of Dellinger’ s commitment. Included are Dellinger’s ‘Statement on Entering Prison,’ written in 1943 when the author refused to register for the draft; a report from China; reflections on the black struggle in the South in the mid-1950’s; essays on the black rebellions and the assassination of Martin Luther King; discussions of civil disobedience, the antiwar movement, pacifism, and violence; the Eichmann trial; the Warren Report; and the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago which resulted in the author’s being convicted for inciting a riot. The volume concludes with the remarks the author made at his sentencing for contempt at the end of the Chicago Conspiracy trial, while his introduction brings fresh insights to the experiences which produced these essays. Dave Dellinger is editor of Liberation magazine and co-chairman of the New Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam. He has been active in civil rights and pacifist groups, and has contributed to SEEDS OF LIBERATION, NONVIOLENCE IN AMERICA, TELLING IT LIKE IT WAS-THE CHICAGO RIOTS, and AGAINST THE CRIME OF SILENCE. .
