Daniel Burton-Rose: Creating a Movement with Teeth: A Documentary History of the George Jackson Brigade

0.99 1.99

“We are cozy cuddly/armed and dangerous/and we will/raze the fucking prisons/to the ground.” In an attempt to deliver on this promise, the George Jackson Brigade launched a violent three-year campaign in the mid-1970s against corporate and state institutions in the Pacific Northwest. This campaign, conceived by a group of blacks and whites, both straight and gay, claimed fourteen bombings, as many bank robberies, and a jailbreak. Drawing on extensive interviews with surviving members of the George Jackson Brigade, Guerrilla USA provides an inside-out perspective on the social movements of the 1970s, revealing the whole era in a new and more complex light. It is also a compelling exploration of the true nature of crime and a provocative meditation on the tension between self-restraint and anger in the process of social change.

Daniel Burton-Rose is a sixth year doctoral candidate specializing in religious discourse in late imperial China. He spent the 2013-14 academic year conducting researching in Suzhou supported by a Fulbright Fellowship. His dissertation is titled: “The Religious Lives of Qing Dynasty Literati-Officials: Ancestor Reverence, Spirit-Writing, and Temple Patronage among the Peng Clan of Suzhou, 1650s-1790s.”
