The story of Puerto Rican leader Oscar López Rivera is one of courage, valour and sacrifice. A decorated Vietnam veteran and respected community activist, López Rivera is one of the longest held political prisoners in the world. Behind bars since 1981, he was convicted of the thought-crime of 'seditious conspiracy', though never accused of harming anyone. Through photographs, reproductions of his paintings and graphic content, Oscar's life is made strikingly accessible as the book tells of his emergence as a community activist, of his life underground, and of his years in prison.
