This biography of a great American activist sheds light on a part of American history that is too seldom remembered or taught. Abe Osheroff, a Jewish boy from Brooklyn, grew up participating in the great liberal battles of the early 20th century. As a youth, he participated in "move-in" of evicted tenants, a battle that foreshadows the current Occupy Wall Street's battles for foreclosed-on homeowners. As a yount man, he joined the hundreds of idealistic Americans who volunteered through the Abraham Lincoln Brigade to fight for the Spanish republic against the fascist (and ultimately successful) insurrection of Francisco Franco. From the time he returned from Spain, Abe Osheroff fought for civil rights, for justice to Nicaragua and for many other social issues. He was, to the last, a fighter who never gave up and never lost his sense of humor or perspective. His story is inspirational.
