This volume presents interviews, essays, and excerpts from Davis's most important works including her memoir. In four parts -- Prisons, repression, and resistance; Marxism, anti-racism, and feminism; aesthetics and culture; and interviews -- Davis examines progressive politics and intellectualism The extensive introduction by Joy James both provides biographical background and contextualizes the intellectual development of Davis as one of the leading thinkers of our time.
