    One thought on “From Yale to Jail: The Life Story of a Moral Dissenter”

    1. Born with a golden spoon in his mouth, David Dellinger could have had it all. A talented athlete from an affluent background, educated at Yale and Oxford, he had every advantage. But he gave them up for justice and principle, enduring financial insecurity, long prison terms, hunger strikes, death threats, for what he believed in: Christian pacifism, later secular humanism. While at Yale he went tramping, briefly living like a homeless derelict to see how the "other half" lived. Chapters 8 and 9 [...]

    2. David Dellinger was the privileged Ivy League son of a lawyer who went to jail as a CO in WWII. That's just the start. Gets a little bogged down with the Chicago 7 trial but is still essential reading. WRL, Union Theological, intentional radical nonviolence communitiesexcellent reading.

    3. A critical, insightful personal history that intersects with turbulent times in the United States. David Dellinger's life is truly an inspiring one. I found the book very compelling, and read it in a couple of days.

    4. i think this is my favorite autobiography that i've ever read. required reading for anyone interested in activisms.cially anti-war activisms. not only was dellinger a complete creative bad ass who suffered and worked tirelessly for what he believed in (a world without war)he was also was a really great writer this book is a joy to read (though some of it is quite difficult to stomach)

    5. When I read this around three years ago I thought it was one of the best books I had ever read. In retrospect, as my ideas have changed, I still admire David Dellinger but do not bestow the legendary status upon him that I used to. Still a nice autobiography, although I believe he is silent on his support for Castro.

    6. This book would be much, much better as a biography rather than an autobiography. Amazingly interested and impressive person, to be sure, and I don't want to minimize any of his many, many accomplishments but I felt very annoyed by his tone in this book.
