Democracy in print : the best of the Progressive magazine, 1909-2009( )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Democracy in print captures many of the most influential voices from a century of United States history who have spoken out on the struggle to make real the promise of democracy for all Americans, railed against abuses of corporate power, renounced American empire, championed environmental causes, opposed war, and waged peace. It chronicles voices of the women's rights movement, the civil rights movement, the labor movement, and the gay rights movement. And on every page it declares the importance of an independent media by culling the best of the Progressive magazine over the last one hundred years"--UW Press Web Site
La Follette's autobiography : a personal narrative of political experiences by Robert M La Follette( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The autobiography of Robert La Follette (1855-1925) traces the political life and accomplishments of this eminent Republican politician from his election as district attorney for Dane County, Wisconsin in 1880 to the presidential campaign of 1912, when his bid to dislodge President William Howard Taft was pushed aside by former president Theodore Roosevelt on the Progressive Party's national ticket. The book emphasizes tactics, strategies, and coalition-building as well as La Follette's assessments of various local and national public figures. We learn little about La Follette's childhood, education, legal training or family life, although he does pay tribute to his wife, a lawyer and civic reformer in her own right. La Follette served three terms in Congress (1885-1891); and after a decade of private law practice and grassroots activism, was elected Wisconsin's governor (1900-1904). From 1905 until his death, La Follette was a senator. He crusaded at state and national level against powerful, unregulated business interests--especially the railroads--which he felt exerted undue influence upon government. He also championed open primary elections, equitable taxation of corporations, and public management of public resources by highly qualified, non-partisan public servants. While many of these influential reforms were instituted at the state level during his governorship, his contribution in the Senate may have had less to do with his legislative record than with his ability to rally forces around well-articulated programs
You have no rights : stories of America in an age of repression by Matthew Rothschild( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You Have No Rights contains more than eighty accounts about ordinary people across the country whose rights have been violated as a result of ramped-up national security policies. Included in these pages are the waiter whom the Secret Service refused to let work at a Bush fund-raiser because his name was Mohamad; the teacher in Vermont whose classroom was raided after midnight by a police officer because students had made prowar and antiwar posters; and the antiwar veterans in Tallahassee who weren't allowed to march in their Veterans' Day parade." "These and the other stories in this book will surprise and enrage you. They show just how un-free - and un-American - the country has become."--Jacket
