Sinopsis: A behind-the-scenes account, based on interviews and previously confidential records, traces the relationship of George Jackson, the Black Panther commander and hero to the New Left of the sixties, and his white, Yale-educated lawyer, Stephen Bingham.
From Kirkus Reviews: A fast-paced account, bloody and suspenseful, of a defining event in the history of the New Left. On August 21, 1971, the radical writer (Soledad Brother) and Black Panther leader George Jackson tried to shoot his way out of San Quentin Prison, where he had been jailed on a murder charge. Jackson died; so did three guards and two other inmates. The breakout attempt had been carefully planned, writes Bay Area journalist Liberatore, but no one could foresee its reverberations. One man whose life was forever altered was Jackson's white attorney Stephen Bingham, ``blue-blooded, reared in wealth and privilege,'' who had come to embrace Jackson's goals of a unified political struggle. (``When the races start fighting,'' Jackson had written, ``all you have is one maniac group against the other. That's just what the pigs want.'') After Jackson's death Bingham went underground, a wanted man for his supposed role in smuggling a pistol for Jackson into the prison; he resurfaced a dozen years later and defended himself in a dramatic, emotional trial whose recounting occupies the last part of the book. Liberatore traces the evolution of Jackson and Bingham's political thought through the tumultuous years of Vietnam and the civil-rights struggle, and his portrait of the ever-changing New Left will fascinate those too young to remember times full of what a San Quentin official aptly called ``bullshit talk by dilettante revolutionaries.'' While clearly admiring Jackson and Bingham for the strength of their convictions, Liberatore is no hero-worshiper; neither does he entertain radical-chic nostalgia for an era whose wounds are still fresh. Published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the attempted breakout, Liberatore's chronicle adds considerably to our understanding of that time of trouble. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP.

On August 21, 1971, Jackson, armed with a 9mm automatic, led the infamous San Quentin massacre, which resulted in his death and the brutal slaying of three guards and two other prisoners. Two months later, Bingham was indicted for murder and conspiracy~for allegedly smuggling the gun to Jackson. He had already gone underground as a fugitive. Award~winning author Paul Liberatore traces the chilling story of a young black man convicted of a $70 robbery who became a best~selling writer and a "revolutionary hero" of the counterculture and the young, white, Yale~educated civil rights activist turned Berkeley radical who became his lawyer. In telling this story, Liberatore plumbs the highly charged differences that indelibly marked the black and white wings of the radical New Left. Liberatore's behind~the~scenes account ~ based on interviews and previously confidential records ~ unweaves the tangled facts of the case: Jackson's rise to sudden celebrity with the publication of his book Soledad Brother, his alliance with the Black Panthers, his torrid encounter with Angela Davis, Bingham's own attraction to the Panthers, his relocation to Paris after Jackson's death, and his eventual trial in California thirteen years later. The Road to Hell reveals many never before published facts about this violent, mystery shrouded episode and is essential for anyone interested in the social, racial, and political turbulence of the sixties and seventies.
