For Radical Freedom - Angela Davis' New Book

Shelley Walia Frontline (India)
Angela Davis' lectures take the reader towards a serious reconsideration of ideology and the state apparatus and the deplorable question of oppression on the basis of race, gender, class and sexual orientation.

The Meaning of Freedom articulates a bold vision of the society we need to build and the path to get there.

Benjamin Jealous, President and CEO, NAACP
