Blood in the Water (Book Review)

The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy By Pulitzer Prize Author Heather Ann Thompson

The first half of Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy deals with an almost minute by minute account of the uprising. The second half, after the retaking by the state, has to do with the aftermath and legal cases that took place. In addition to reading Blood in the Water, I had the pleasure of hearing the author speak recently as she discussed why the 1971 uprising matters today.
