"I've been described as a tough and noisy woman, a prize fighter, a man-hater, you name it. They call me Battling Bella, Mother Courage, and a Jewish mother with more complaints than Portnoy. There are those who say I'm impatient, impetuous, uppity, rude, profane, brash, and overbearing. Whether I'm any of those things, or all of them, you can decide for yourself. But whatever I am--and this ought to made very clear--I am a very serious woman." For more than fifty years, Bella Abzug championed the powerless and disenfranchised, as an activist, congresswoman, and leader in every major social in... View more info

It began in 1960 with the Greensboro sit-ins. By 1973, when a few Native Americans rebelled at Wounded Knee and the U.S. Army came home from Vietnam, it was over. In between came Freedom Rides, Port Huron, the Mississippi Summer, Berkeley, Selma, Vietnam, the Summer of Love, Black Power, the Chicago Convention, hippies, Brown Power, and Women's Liberation--The Movement--in an era that became known as The Sixties. Why did millions of Americans become activists; why did they take to the streets? These are questions Terry Anderson explores in The Movement and The Sixties, a searching history ... View more info

Nineteenth-century Europe was the scene of extraordinary upheaval. The French Revolution had unlocked the doors to progressive ideas such as freedom for all from poverty and suffering, the widening of life's opportunities, and universal brotherhood. Then, Napoleon's occupation of most of the Continent raised further hopes for the rule of law and the improvement of conditions for the common man. Upon Napoleon's defeat, the reactionary forces of the ruling class took control again, and it appeared as if nothing had ultimately changed since the days of the ancien regime.It was in this period t...

Daring in vision and impassioned in tone, The Food Wars speaks out against the obscene imbalance in the most basic commodities between northern and southern hemispheres. View more info
