Of the 50,000 Amer. who declared themselves conscientious objectors (CO) during WW2, nearly 6,000 went to prison, many serving multiyear sentences in Fed. lockups. Some CO, notably Robert Lowell, William Everson, & William Stafford, went on to become important figures in the literary life of their country, while others were participants & teachers in the civil rights & antiwar movements of the 1950s, 1960s, & 1970s. Collected by two of these “POWs” & illus. by a third, this volume was first pub. in 1950, & featured a preface by Christopher Isherwood & a written endorsement by Aldous Huxley. This ed., with a new foreword, is produced from one of the few surviving copies of the original & marks the first time this important book has been widely avail.
