From PM Press, which has arguably become the most politically active press in the western U.S., with good measures of literary work as well, come PM Press authors Diana Block and Dan Berger, each with good new books. Diana Block has written Clandestine Occupations, a work of speculative fiction, but one drawn on her own experience living over a decade underground, working on behalf of Puerto Rican and black liberation movements.

“Clandestine Occupations is a triumph of passion and force. A number of memoirs and other nonfiction works by revolutionaries from the 1970s and ‘80s, including one by Block herself, have given us partial pictures of what a committed life, sometimes lived underground, was like. But there are times when only fiction can really take us there. A marvelous novel that moves beyond all preconceived categories.” -Margaret Randall.

Dan Berger is here with The Struggle Within: Prisons, Political Prisoners, and Mass Movements in the United States.

“The Struggle Within powerfully demonstrates that the issue of political prisoners is not about individuals but about the deep and enduring bonds of community resistance. Berger’s beautiful synthesis of more than fifty years of people’s history places the prison at the center of contemporary freedom struggles. This book is necessary reading for all who wish to revive a radical tradition in the face of the prison’s coercive attempt at erasure. The Struggle Within is a vital and moving contribution, rooted in the power of collective history.“ -Angela Y. Davis
