This brilliant and absorbing collection of rigorous research, thoughtful political interventions, and innovative works of art is immensely important to the practice of committed scholars, activists, and organizers. There is much that teaches, fortifies, motivates, and mobilizes here.

"The Abolition Collective offers a unique, revolutionary lens through which to view, analyze, and fight against capitalism and patriarchy on the terrain of the prison-industrial complex. It aims to combine an abolitionist message with a democratic production process that prioritizes participation of those directly affected by incarceration. What a welcome and needed approach! I am confident the project will help intellectuals build ties of solidarity across race, class, gender, nationality, and other borders that block liberation and in its finest moments will help teach us, as Mumia says, to 'fight with light in our eyes.'"
–James Kilgore, author of Understanding Mass Incarceration: A People's Guide to the Key Civil Rights Struggle of Our Time
