  1. I was born in 1958 Perhaps I should have paid attention to Attica when it happened, but before I read this book, it was half remembered I recall the state police in orange raincoats for identification about to storm the yard.I did not know so many hostages were killed by the police I did not know the state tried to cheat the families out of compensation I was unclear of the role played by Governor Rockefeller Now those news reports and the little history I had read of the uprising has come toget [...]


  2. There were some really high points to this Kindle Single, but there were also some big shortcomings as well Jones played a first hand role in the events at Attica, asked by the leaders of the revolt to mediate and personally called New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller negotiate a peaceful resolution Jones first hand account of his involvement and subsequent role in a commission investigating the tragedy makes for compelling reading For me, this was the real strength of this Kindle Single My main [...]


  3. I chose a four star rating, because I was expecting of a thrilling story from behind the prison walls I guess it was what it was The author explains how everything led up to why he was selected to negotiate for the prisoners The actual time with the prisoners was relatively short before the governor pulled the negotiators, and ordered a slaughter, The author did reveal a lot about our prison systems, and why they don t really rehabilitate prisoners Overall, it was a decent read I do agree with t [...]


  4. Very short account of the tragic prisoner revolt in Attica I read it because my childhood home was near Attica It was disappointing in the lack of detail and research into prison systems and the characters involved Basically an indictment of the governor and others who had little interest in doing anything except restoring control at any price.


  5. This is a good non inmates view of the uprising in Attica Prison He was there to help negotiate and help the men to be heard by the public and then betrayed by the very people that asked for the help, due to political ambitions of the day This was a slaughterhouse to better a politician s goals.
