In September 1971, the bloodiest prison riot in American history took place in sleepy upstate New York town of Attica. Yet most of that blood was spilled not by the inmates who took over Attica Correctional Facility during four desperate days, but by the state’s governor and future vice president Nelson Rockefeller.
This is the personal story of what those days were like, what went wrong, and how the tragedy at Attica holds up a mirror to America’s dark treatment of its prison population. Clarence B. Jones and Stuart Connelly, the authors of the acclaimed memoir Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech That Transformed a Nation, take on the most urgent and least understood civil rights issue of today’s society – prisoners’ rights. Jones, the reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s former attorney and draft speechwriter, now tells the personal story of his time battling and negotiating for the inmates’ survival as one of the observers and requested by the inmates during the rebellion. But Uprising: Understanding Attica, Revolution, and the Incarceration State goes beyond memoir – Jones and Connelly use Attica as a touchstone for a clear-eyed critique of what has gone wrong with America’s prison system over the last 40 years.

America was made by the railroads.

Built through heroic effort, the American railroad network was bigger in every sense than Europe’s, and facilitated everything from long-distance travel to commuting and transporting goods to waging war.

A 10-step approach to ditch diet culture, heal your relationship with food, and learn to love your body from clinical psychologist Alexis Conason. Diets don’t work – and it’s not your fault. As a culture, we’re told (and tell ourselves) that if we just lost the weight – tried a little harder, had a little more willpower, or deprived ourselves for a little bit longer – we’d be happier, healthier, and more desirable. But it’s just not true. The Diet-Free Revolution debunks the myths we’ve been sold about food, nutrition, health, and weight loss and offers an antidote to the pain and suffering caused by yo-yo diets, untenable food regimens, and quick fixes.
