Haymarket author and people's historian Howard Zinn
wrote: “To survive, democracy needs a truly radical, truly independent press more than ever before. We need to create a culture in this country in which reading and resistance go hand-in-hand.”
In that spirit, we offer a reading guide for those looking for the history, politics, and inspiration for the many struggles to come. Let's work to make 2017 a Year of Resistance!
