"The work of the political activist inevitably involves a certain tension between the requirement that positions be taken on current issues as they arise and the desire that one's contributions will somehow survive the ravages of time. In this sense the most difficult challenge facing the activist is to respond fully to the needs of the moment and to do so in such a way that the light one attempts to shine on the present Will simultaneously illuminate the future."

-- from the Introduction

"Davis is an articulate and powerful analyst of contemporary culture." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"A veteran radical's feisty Views from the barricades...Davis's integrity here will inspire many." -- Kirkus

"Behold the heart and mind of Angela Davis: open, relentless, and on time! She is as radiant, she is as true, as that invincible sunrise she means means means to advance With all of the faith and all of the grace of her entirely devoted life." -- June Jordan
