An accessible yet wide-ranging historical primer, The Struggle Within discusses how mass imprisonment has been a state-sponsered tool of repression deployed against diverse, left-wing social movements over the last 50 years. Author Dan Berger goes on to examine some of the most dynamic social movements across half a century, including black liberation, Puerto Rican independence, Native American sovereignty, Chicano radicalism, white antiracist and working-class mobilizations, pacifist and antinuclear campaigns, earth liberation, and animal rights. Bergers encyclopedic knowledge of social movements in the United States provides a rich comparative history of numerous campaigns that continue to shape contemporary politics. The book also offers a little-heard voice in contemporary critiques of mass incarceration by investigation how mass incarcerations have occurred within a slew of social movements that have provided steep challenges to state power.

Finally, a perfectly elucidated and cogently written explanation for the citizenry.
Please, pay very, very, very close attention to this book, then reflect upon the lawsuit, reported in foreign newspapers but not in any American news outlets, that a few years back false // precedent-establishing \\ legal cases were created and fraudulently entered into the two major legal databases - - and hopefully enlightenment will occur.
