Mark Lane has been inspiring social consciousness, influencing history makers, and inciting controversy for more than six decades. In Citizen Lane, he tells the story of his remarkable life, demonstrating how a single dedicated individual can fight for the underdog, provoke the establishment, and trigger change. From the streets to the courtroom, he has been on the front lines in the events that shaped a generation in opposition to government excesses and war. Icons of the American political and social landscape appear throughout his narrative as Lane's cohorts and companions and as his vicious opponents. Radical leaders embraced him; the FBI and CIA tried to destroy him. No one who dealt with him had a neutral reaction to his forceful, opinionated, larger-than-life persona. Entertaining and enlightening, this autobiography confirms that one person can make a difference and change the lives of millions by holding to his principles regardless of the consequences. Mark Lane is a lawyer, a former member of the New York State legislature, an author, and an activist. He is the bestselling author of Rush to Judgment and Plausible Denial. He lives in Charlottesville, Virginia. Martin Sheen is a distinguished actor, an activist, and the recipient of many awards, including the Laetare Medal, the most prestigious honor for an American Catholic.
