George Jackson completed the manuscript of Blood in my Eye just a few days before he was shot and killed while, it is alleged, attempting to escape from the maximum-security prison at San Quentin. His story became known to millions with the publication of Soledad Brother.

Blood in my Eye takes up where Soledad Brother left off - it is a devastating and passionate critique of American society and a programme for destruction.

'Whether or not George Jackson's analysis proves prophetic, the power and despairing clarity of his writing makes him one of the great voices of the American Left.'
- Sunday Times
