This space is dedicated to the proposition that we need to know the history of the struggles on the left and of earlier progressive movements here and world-wide.

We will be reviewing books, CDs, and movies we believe everyone needs to read, hear and look at as well as making commentary from time to time. Greg Green, site manager
