Description
 
Radicals in America is a masterful history of controversial dissenters who
pursued greater equality, freedom and democracy - and transformed the nation.
Written with clarity and verve, Radicals in America shows how radical leftists,
while often marginal or ostracized, could assume a catalytic role as effective
organizers in mass movements, fostering the imagination of alternative futures.
Beginning with the Second World War, Radicals in America extends all the way
down to the present, making it the first comprehensive history of radicalism to
reach beyond the sixties. From the Communist Party and the Black Panther Party
for Self-Defense, its coverage extends to the Battle of Seattle and Occupy Wall
Street. Each chapter begins with a particular life story, including a Harlem
woman deported in the McCarthy era, a gay Japanese-American opponent of the
Vietnam War, and a Native American environmentalist, vignettes that bring to
life the personal within the political.
