Eye of the Hurricane PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Eye of the Hurricane free pdf A spiritual as well as a factual autobiography, this is a self-portrait of Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter, a 20th-century icon and controversial victim of the U.S. justice system turned spokesperson for the wrongfully convicted. Exploring Carter's personal philosophy - born of the unimaginable duress of wrongful imprisonment and conceived through his defiance of the brutal institution of prison and a decade of solitary confinement - this work offers hope for those who have none and serves as a call to action for those who abhor injustice. Exposing the inherent flaws in the legal and penal systems, this autobiography also serves as a prison survival manual - be it a brick-and-mortar cell or the metaphorical prison of childhood abuse, racism, and despair.
