"Since 2010, North America has witnessed a cascading series of rebellions in jails, prisons, and detention centers. Within the most damaging and dangerous institutions, incarcerated people have used protests, uprisings, and labor and hunger strikes to demand change. Although it has been hard to see through the obstruction of concrete walls and concertina wire, their calls for human rights have been increasingly interlinked. Perilous Chronicle provides an accessible account of this wave of urgent protest. Deeply researched, impressively organized, and sorely needed, this timeline brings together the wide array of actions that have happened across the United States and Canada. It is a vital resource for journalists, teachers, students, and anyone else looking to understand the scale of protest emanating from inside the awful world of confinement."
