Streitmatter tells the stories of dissident American
publications and press movements of the last two centuries, and of
the colorful individuals behind them. From publications that fought
for the disenfranchised to those that promoted social reform,
Voices of Revolution examines the abolitionist and labor
press, black power publications of the 1960s, the crusade against
the barbarism of lynching, the women's movement, and antiwar
journals. Streitmatter also discusses gay and lesbian publications,
contemporary on-line journals, and counterculture papers like
The Kudzu and The Berkeley Barb that flourished
in the 1960s. Voices of Revolution also identifies and
discusses some of the distinctive characteristics shared by the
genres of the dissident press that rose to prominence -- from the
early nineteenth century to the late twentieth century.
For far too long, mainstream journalists and even some media
scholars have viewed radical, leftist, or progressive periodicals
in America as "rags edited by crackpots." However, many of these
dissident presses have shaped the way Americans think about social
and political issues.
