by Butch Lee
This is a major biographical study, which refutes the standard "American" version of Harriet Tubman's life. At a time when violence against women of color is at the center of world politics, uncovering the censored story of one Amazon points to answers that have nothing to do with government programs, police, or patriarchal politics. Butch Lee has been described as the most astute white feminist currently writing in the United States - she is a longtime revolutionary, and co-author of Night-Vision: Illuminating War and Class on the Neo-Colonial Terrain. Jailbreak Out of History is the fourth part of a work in progress, the first three parts having been published separately as The Military Strategy of Women and Children.
