Protest Nation
Words that Inspired a Century of American Radicalism


Co-edited by 
Timothy Patrick McCarthy 
and John McMillian

Protest Nation is a dazzling collection of the speeches, letters, broadsides, essays, and manifestos that form the modern-day backbone of the powerful American tradition of activism and struggle. Here are the words - from socialists, feminists union organizers, civil-rights workers, gay and lesbian activists, and environmentalists - that have been beacons for millions, reaching from the present and going back through decades of radical thinking and movement-building. Protest Nation captures twentieth-century American radical thought and action and will both thrill and inspire twenty-first century readers.

Timothy Patrick McCarthy is lecturer and Director of the Human Rights and Social Movements Program at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is co-editor of the Radical Reader and Prophets of Protest (both published by The New Press). 

John McMillian Is the author of Smoking Typewriters: The Sixties Underground Press and the Rise of Alternative Media in America and co-editor of both The Radical Readerand The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics and Culture.  
"This is an extraordinary collection of the voices of American dissidents. Even to browse through it is to be delighted and inspired."

Author of A People's History of the United States
