[mild shelfwear; fragile, brown-paper jacket has long tears at top rear hinge and top rear foldover, with some associated wrinkling/creasing to top section of rear panel, but is still clean with minimal paper loss]. A collection of poems, essays, letters and eulogies, in which the author "reveals her deeply personal struggles as she confronts today's problems -- the Vietnam war, racial inequality, the never-ending battle of women against oppression, and her special experience as a lesbian." Especially notable is her "vivid account of three days in 'concentration camp' with the Mayday Tribe," during a 1971 antiwar demonstration in Washington, D.C. Deming, a feminist, journalist, and activist for non-violent social change, died in 1984.
