Guerrilla USA : The George Jackson Brigade and the Anticapitalist Underground of the 1970s Paperback / softback
'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.
