Mad Bomber Melville is the long overdue biography of Samuel Melville, a white, working class revolutionary, whose guerrilla bombings set in motion a flood of armed revolutionary actions in the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Once imprisoned, Melville became a key organizer and a crucial element of the notorious Attica Prison rebellion, uniting prisoners across racial barriers and making the ultimate sacrifice for revolutionary change. Mad Bomber Melville traces Sam Melville's short life and rapid political development, highlighting a much-needed example of an undying and uncompromising struggle for justice and liberation.


“This study reclaims an important, but largely unheralded, piece of radical history, with valuable lessons about initiative, shortcomings and growth in striving to be fully on the side of the oppressed.”
—David Gilbert, US political prisoner, and member, Weather Underground Organization, author of Love and Struggle (PM Press)
