50 American Revolutions You’re Not Supposed To Know
11 Oct 2005
Kristen Henderson of Antigone Rising says "50 American Revolutions You're Not Supposed to Know" is: "A reminder that complacency is (so) not sexy. It inspires one to stand up to the things that don't pass the tummy test. Those of us who choose the middle of the road will only get hit by a car."

50 American Revolutions You’re Not Supposed To Know
Reclaiming American Patriotism
(Disinformation Books) $9.95

Since when is it unpatriotic to dissent? Why is it “un-American” to question our government’s policies? And how did the far-right manage to claim the flag exclusively for itself? In this invaluable reference guide, you’ll find 50 reasons to be a proud, progressive patriot, including:

+Thomas Paine fueling the revolutionary fire with "Common Sense"
+Emma Goldman spreading anarchy in the U.S.A.
+Eugene Debs running for president from his prison cell
+Billie Holiday singing “Strange Fruit”
+Lolita Lebron (and others) attacking Congress
+Muhammad Ali saying “no” to the military draft
+American Indians occupying Alcatraz Island
+Patti Smith using rock and roll as a weapon
+The Battle in Seattle
+Families of 9/11 victims saying “no” to revenge
+Plus "Uncle Tom's Cabin," Lenny Bruce, Angela Davis, Eugene Debs, Brando's tee-shirt, and much more

In addition to concise essays on everything and everyone from The Bill of Rights to Disability Rights, Coxey’s Army to Public Enemy, author Mickey Z also highlights important milestones along the timeline of the book, making for a more complete picture of United States history.
