Standing at the intersection of the past and the future stands Harvey Kaye, our great radical historian. Kaye practices his craft in the tradition of E.P. Thompson and Howard Zinn, turning our attention to neglected individuals, moments and messages that illuminate our understanding of who we have been and who we are. Yet, Harvey Kaye brings to his scholarship a distinctive academic commitment, as readers of this fine book will quickly and surely recognize. He believes, correctly, that our revolutionary past provides the truest evidence that another world is possible.--John Nichols "The Nation "
Harvey Kaye doesn't just write about history, he uses history to show exactly where we are today - and where we could take it. He has the wisdom of a sage, the passion of a prophet, and the intelligence of a true patriot. And he writes with compassion and guts.--John Fugelsang "Host of SiriusXM's Tell Me Everything "
Harvey Kaye is our essential and always engaging guide to owning our progressive history. America has a rich progressive social-democratic history that has been obscured by the Right and all too often ignored by the Left. But now, as Bernie Sanders leads a social-democratic presidential campaign, we have an opportunity to assert a new politics. Whatever your politics are, you need to know this history and argument.--Michael Brooks "The Michael Brooks Show "
Harvey Kaye does it again, with a brilliant, historically-grounded, deeply insightful prescription to our nation's ills - grounded in what we already know works! Read, share, and act!--Thom Hartmann "The Thom Hartmann Show "
