America has recently re-awakened to the idea that real change is possible. Yet this present moment is just a point on a journey that extends over a century of activism and struggleâ¿¿one that has been kept alive by a powerful American tradition of inspiring radical alternatives to the status quo. Protest Nation is a guide through the speeches, letters, broadsides, essays, and manifestos that form the backbone of this tradition-a much more accessible trade edition of The Radical Reader, which was published for the academy. Here are the wordsâ¿¿from socialists, feminists, union organizers, civil-rights workers, gay and lesbian activists, and environmentalistsâ¿¿that have served as beacons for millions. Their radical arguments and ideas are links in a chain reaching from the present back through decades of radical thinking and movement-building. Brief introductory essays by the editors provide a rich biographical and historical context for each selection included. Protest Nation presents the most significant and brilliant examples of radical writing, in a concise volume geared for anyone interested in reconnecting with the deep currents of American radical thinking. These range from a fiery speech by Eugene Debs, the great socialist orator; to the original Black Panther Party Platform; to Peter Singer's astonishing treatise on animal liberation, among many others.
