“This book, MAROON THE IMPLACABLE, is that very funky instruction manual on how to make revolution against Imperialist America.”- Amiri Barak, former Poewt Laureate of New Jersey
Russell Maroon Shoatz is a political prisoner who has been held unjustly for over thirty years, including two decades in solitary confinement. He was active as a leader in the Black Liberation Movement in Philadelphia, both above and underground. His successful escapes from maximum-security prisons earned him the title “Maroon.” This is the first published collection of his accumulated written works, and also includes new essays written for this volume.
His innovative and historical analysis of the U.S. prison system. Maroon communities throughout the Americas, eco-socialism, eco-feminism, food security, prefiguration, and the Occupy Wall Street movement provide cutting-edge challenges for today’s movements for social change.
