About this product
- DescriptionFrom Addams to Zinn, a century of voices is speaking out on war, peace, human rights, labor, and democracy. Democracy in Print captures many of the most influential voices from a century of United States history who have spoken out on the struggle to make real the promise of democracy for all Americans, railed against abuses of corporate power, reunced American empire, championed environmental causes, opposed war, and waged peace. It chronicles voices of the women's rights movement, the civil rights movement, the labor movement, and the gay rights movement. And on every page it declares the importance of an independent media by culling the best of The Progressive magazine over the last one hundred years. Readers will discover the vision of the magazine's founder, Robert 'Fighting Bob' La Follette, and his suffragist wife, Belle Case La Follette. They'll find historic gems from the likes of Jane Addams, Carl Sandburg, Huey Long, and John Kenneth Galbraith, and profound essays by Theodore Dreiser, Barbara Ehrenreich, Noam Chomsky, Upton Sinclair, Arundhati Roy, James Baldwin, Edwidge Danticat, and Edward Said. The collection is leavened with humor from Kate Clinton, Will Durst, Michael Feldman, and Molly Ivins, and graced by poems from such writers as Mahmoud Darwish, Rita Dove, Martin Espada, Maxine Kumin, Adrienne Rich, and Sandra Cisneros. Fascinating interviews bring readers into conversations with prominent cultural figures, including Chuck D, the Dalai Lama, Allen Ginsberg, Amy Goodman, Harold Pinter, Patti Smith, Susan Sarandon, and Yevgeny Yevtushenko. Eminently browsable, this book is for anyone concerned with American democracy, the global community, and the perils of the planet. With contributions by actors and Supreme Court justices, comedians and Nobel Prize winners, Democracy in Print offers all readers urishing food for thought.
