Description - The American Radical by Mary Jo Buhle
"The American Radical" tells the story of American democracy from the late 18th century to the present, through the lives of the women and men who have fought to advance it. The original biographical portraits presented in this collection show how, in every period of history, Americans from various backgrounds have stood as activists, authors and artists to challenge the powerful. The editors have assembled a group of writers on the radical tradition, who introduce the movements, ideas and struggles of the revolutionaries, rebels and reformers important to the American national experience; they include independence fighters, Labourists, suffragists, socialists, feminists, pacifists, environmentalists, and campaigners for social justice and the civil rights of the oppressed.
