Comrade George: An Investigation Into the Life, Political Thought, and Assassination of George Jackson

 Howard Zinn

author, A People’s History of the United States
The language is angry, but it subjects the official explanation of Jackson’s death to a meticulous examination. It connects Jackson’s killing to the current upsurge of prison revolts.

Comrade George is one of the most valuable and enlightening revolutionary manuals in our possession.

Denise Levertov

poet, author, Freeing the Dust
For revolutionaries, Comrade George is a stimulating tool; for more temperate radicals it is a concise account of ideas, situations, and forces they are going to have to deal with in one way or another. It fills out George Jackson’s Letters from Prisonand exposes the brutality, injustice, and racism of our infamous prisons.
