A powerful collection of essays, speeches, letters, and lyrics illustrates the rich history of political dissent—the fuel for the engine of American progress—from pre-Revolutionary firebrands to today's heirs of this profoundly American tradition.

Selections representing a spectrum of views and social strata include stalwarts (Anne Hutchinson, Thoreau, LaFollette, MLK), lesser-knowns (Minoru Yasui, Mos Def), and some surprises (Ted Kaczynski, Paul Weyrich). A brief essay describing the politics of the era fronts each chapter, while blurbs giving author information and context begin every selection.

Quantities are limited.
