Eye of the Hurricane: My Path from Darkness to Freedom is a self-portrait of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a twentieth-century icon and controversial victim of the U.S. justice system turned spokesperson for the wrongfully convicted. In this moving narrative Dr. Carter tells of all the "prisons" he has survived--from his childhood through his wrongful incarceration and after. A spiritual as well as a factual autobiography, Eye of the Hurricane explores Carter's personal philosophy, born of the unimaginable duress of wrongful imprisonment and conceived through his defiance of the brutal institution of prison and ten years of solitary confinement. His is not a comfortable story or a comfortable philosophy, but it offers hope for those who have none and serves as a call to action for those who abhor injustice. Eye of the Hurricane may well change the way we view crime and punishment in the twenty-first century.

  1. Välskriven bok med djup
    jeff ödeen, 9 februari 2015

    Jag beställde boken i hopp om att få läsa om Rubins uppväxt och vuxna liv.
    Att få läsa Om de erfarenheter han fått genom att oskyldigt sitta fängslad i 19 år för 3 mord han inte begått.
    Delvis fick jag det ville men i slutändan visade sig att tongivning har legat på Rubins syn på samhället i stort, andra oskyldigt dömda människor och Rubins jobb att rentvå dem och hur du ska finna dig själv.

    Boken är mycket välskriven och detaljerad.

"Rubin Carter describes his truly inspiring journey through his early life of brutality and suffering into his current life of hard-won spiritual affirmation and worldwide advocacy for the wrongly convicted. His views on the American justice system and the death penalty are outspoken, uncompromising, and ultimately accurate. Dr. Carter's autobiography presents the unique and passionate vision of a unique and passionate man." -- Sister Helen Prejean, author, "Dead Man Walking" When a judge is responsible for freeing a person whom he believes has been wrongly convicted of murder, he worries whether he will live to regret or be proud of that decision. When it comes to Rubin Carter, I have no regrets. He has justified my faith in him, and I am proud of the person he has become. He is a testament to the human spirit." -- Judge H Lee Sarokin, retired, U.S. Appeals Court "A wonderful and inspiring book. I expected gritty -- it's based on the life of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, after all. What I didn't expect was to be so moved by his extraordinary insight, his disarming honesty and his grace. I loved the book." -- Professor Cookie Ridolfi, director, Northern California Innocence Project "An uplifting tale of how a man can transcend shackles of all sorts." -- Globe & Mail "Long story short, if Eye of the Hurricane doesn't inspire you, nothing will." -- Smooth Magazine "Essential for the socially conscious." -- Library Journal
