Reviews

"An inspiring story of how students are making history today."--Tom Hayden

"As vividly as any documentary film, Liza Featherstone captures the gusto and political savvy of a student movement that has made its impact in every corner of the global economy. Nor does this indispensable book pull any punches; its bold commentary will hit home where it needs to be heard."--Andrew Ross

"Everybody wants to have a living wage. Everybody wants to be able to take care fo themselves and their family. Everybody wants to retire and feel good, enjoy life. Breathe. Live. Eat."--Sheri Davis

"Here are the inspiring voiced of our democracy--young people daring to question authority and confront power. These are the Thomas Paines, Sojourner Truths, Frederick Douglasses, and Mother Joneses of our times. America needs them more than ever."--Jim Hightower

"Campus activism lives! This inspiring and lucid account of the work of United Students Against Sweatshops proves it. Blending commitment and analysis, Featherstone tells us why USAS is about much more than caps and tee shirts--it's about workers' rights, women's rights, challenging the corporatization of the university, and establishing a fair world order."--Katha Pollitt
