Book of the Week – Voices of Protest

Voices of Protest
Documents of Courage and Dissent
Edited by Frank Lowenstein, Sheryl Lechner and Erik Bruun

This eye-opening collection of documents ranging from the pre-Christian era to the present explores the undeniable power of social, political, and religious dissent throughout history and around the world.  Voices of Protest is an inspiring and comprehensive look at the meaning of protest throughout history, in democratic and nondemocratic societies. It is also a rousing confirmation that individual and community action matters and has great influence.

Collected here are more than 300 documents—essays, letters, newspaper articles, court decisions, song lyrics, poetry, cartoons, and more—that represent seven main categories of protest: Civil Rights; National Self- Determination; Economic Justice; Environmental Conservation; Religious Freedom and Morality; Peace and War; and International Political Freedoms.

The Centre’s library opens daily from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.  Sign up as a Friend of the Centre to become a lending member.  For more information, check our website, call 822-1054 or email us!
