Now Available: Seneca Falls, Selma, and StonewallA Progressive History(March 11, 2013)
Madison, WI (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Today, The Progressive Magazine announces publication of Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall, the first installment in an exciting new e-book series from the magazines archives that span over a century.
This book will be fascinating not only to people who identify as progressives but to anyone with an interest in American politics, history, or journalism, said Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive.
For the first time, we have 104 years of progressive history available in a new digital archive, Rothschild added. That allows us to bring out these collections of incredible writing on the great issues of the day.
Look for future e-books on the environment, labor history, and the peace movement.
The title Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall, taken from President Obamas second inaugural address, captures a vision of our countrys historic journey toward a more just society--including womens rights, racial equality, and gay rights, said Ruth Conniff, political editor of the Progressive. Here at The Progressive, weve been documenting that journey for the last 104 years.
The Progressive, a national political magazine, was founded in 1909 by Fighting Bob La Follette. In its early years, it joined the cause of womens suffrage under the leadership of Belle Case La Follette, Fighting Bobs wife.
This collection also features writing from civil rights leaders, including James Baldwin and A. Phillip Randolph, in the 1950s and 1960s, and early celebrations of gay liberation by Allen Ginsberg and Harry Hay.
For a hundred years, The Progressive has chronicled the great liberation movements of our timefeminism, racial equality, gay rightsthrough spectacular reporting, interviews and essays. Whether its Jane Addams wittily suggesting men be denied the vote, James Baldwin describing the inner struggles of living under racism, or Randy Shilts dissecting the early days of AIDS awareness in the gay community, The Progressive brings politics to life. This is a centurys worth of history that is also a centurys worth of hope. --Katha Pollitt
