No More Strangers
NY, Macmillan, (1965). The first book by the priest activist, arguing for social justice and in support of the Civil Rights movement.

He served time in jail numerous times, as part of some of the famous groups of defendants of the period, including the Catonsville Nine, who burned the draft records of a Maryland draft board with homemade napalm; the Harrisburg Seven, who were accused of plotting to kidnap Henry Kissinger; and many more. Heavily mottled cloth; good in a very good dust jacket with a creased edge tear at the lower front corner. Introduction by Thomas Merton. Uncommon inscription. [#032741] SOLD
