MY HERO recommends this book to adult readers.
Oral historian Terkel expresses his enduring hope that pressure from below, from the activists and the troublemakers, can lead to a more equitable society in this, his latest collection of interviews. Not everyone of the 56 figures reminiscing in these pages can properly be called an activist in the narrow sense of the term, but the hope of the activists is a theme that runs throughout as a wide range of mostly American individuals considering politics and life during the period of the New Deal, the 1960s, past and current labor movements, immigrants rights campaigns, and antiwar movements.
