Description

Of the 50,000 Americans who declared themselves conscientious objectors during World War II, nearly 6000 went to prison, many serving multi-year sentences in federal lockups. Some conscientious objectors, notably Robert Lowell, William Everson and William Stafford, went on to become important figures in the literary life of their country, while others were participants and teachers in the civil rights and antiwar movements of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. This long out-of-print book, reprinted from the rare original 1951 edition, collects firsthand accounts by conscientious objectors who were imprisoned for their beliefs. ""Prison Etiquette"" is illustrated with 11 line drawings by the artist Lowell Naeve, who was a participant in the infamous 1943 inmate strike to desegregate the Danbury Prison mess hall, an event that led Danbury to become the first federal prison to abolish segregation.
