Jackson may not have cried over his brother Jonathan's death, but he can't let go of it; it permeates this book, from cover to cover.

A jailhouse theorist, Jackson never got a chance to put his ideas into practice. Although he had street experience, he was still quite young--that age at which every boy and his political reader thinks he's got the solution to the world's trouble. Had he not died at such a young age, he could have developed further.

A very influential work for the New Left.
