Abstract:

The author, a radical and political prisoner, recounts her journey from the impassioned idealism of the 1960s to her thirteen-year imprisonment, during which she suffered dehumanizing treatment combined with rare moments of grace and solidarity.

Rosenberg served sixteen years in some of the worst maximum-security prisons in the United States before being pardoned by President Clinton as he left office in 2001. Now, in a story that is both a powerful memoir and a profound indictment of the U.S. prison system, Rosenberg recounts her journey from the impassioned idealism of the 1960s to life as a political prisoner in her own country, subjected to dehumanizing treatment, yet touched by moments of grace and solidarity. Candid and eloquent, An American Radical reveals the woman behind the controversy--and reflects America's turbulent coming-of-age over the past half century. -- Publisher description
