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.
