A worthwhile purchase.—S.A. Merriman, Choice

At long last, these passionate and perceptive anarchists can be heard! Magnificently edited and masterfully translated, Prison Blossoms should command the attention of anyone interested in the delivery, denial or deferral of justice in the United States.—Glenn C. Altschuler, Cornell University

Prison Blossoms are a distant cousin of Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks. This book reminds us how much we learn about the self-absorbed center of society from those who are caged in at its margin. A gem of a book.—Mary Fainsod Katzenstein, author of Faithful and Fearless
