David Dellinger was a pacifist, anti-war activist, and a member of the Chicago 7 who was considered a stalwart in the non-violence activist movement during Vietnam. Born into a prominent Republican family in Massachusetts and educated at Yale, Dellinger recounts how he developed his political beliefs and the effect it had on those surrounding him. Dellinger also illustrates the power of the grassroots movement by using the Civil Rights Act of 1964 - that it was in fact, the movement at the grassroots level that changed the policy at the top. He talks about the reasons why he believes the United States got involved in Vietnam and why he marched on the Pentagon in 1967, as well as his feelings on why the march was successful. Dellinger also goes into detail about the disruption he helped create at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, the effect it had on the anti-war movement and the problems he saw with American democracy

From Yale to jail : the life story of a moral dissenter by David T Dellinger( Book )
2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The son of a well-to-do Boston lawyer, David Dellinger seemed cut out for a distinguished career in law or government. But rejecting his comfortable background, he walked out of Yale one afternoon during the Great Depression, in his oldest clothes and without any money, to ride the freight trains, sleep at missions, and stand in breadlines. It was while sharing a warming fire on a street corner in a hobo jungle that he first knew that in his own way he would follow the path of Francis of Assisi. Dellinger lived among the poor in Newark, was bloodied in the freedom marches through the South, and led countless hunger strikes in jail. In the "hole" in Danbury prison he faced his own death, to be reborn with courage that would never desert him. Always, he reached out to his antagonist to find a common ground. Dellinger introduced Gandhi's principles of nonviolence to the political street struggles against the Vietnam War, holding together the broad-based antiwar coalition he forged by the sheer force of his personality. In 1968 he held the world spellbound with his cry "the whole world is watching," referring to the media coverage of the Chicago police riot. His life of service to social change had its crowning moment before Judge Julius Hoffman during the Chicago Eight trial, where Dellinger and his co-defendants turned the tables on their accusers to put the government on trial. His recollections of those years shed new light on many of the most crucial events of the 1960s, bringing to life again the drama of those turbulent years. His inside account of what happened in the sixties, and of the people who shaped that decade - Martin Luther King, Jr., Abbie Hoffman, Bayard Rustin, A.J. Muste, Dorothy Day, Jerry Rubin, Joan Baez, and many more - is an indispensable chapter in the story of our time. Above all, From Yale to Jail is a stirring account of an extraordinary spiritual journey, as moving as it is inspiring
