Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The more things change, the more the lefty political magazine the Progressive stays the same, to judge by this scintillating anthology of short articles. Ninety-odd years ago, one could find in its pages founding editor—and U.S. senator—Robert M. La Follette's denunciations of racism, imperialist war, money in politics and rapacious corporations; odes to feminism by Jane Addams and Carl Sandburg; an environmentalist elegy for the passenger pigeon by C.F. Hodge; and a jeremiad against the death penalty by Leo Tolstoy himself. These concerns (and new themes like gay rights and the perils of nuclear power) are elaborated upon in later articles by some of the leading voices of the left: Martin Luther King Jr. on the power of nonviolence; John Kenneth Galbraith on the laziness of the rich; Ralph Nader on the callousness of car companies; Noam Chomsky on media propaganda; and Molly Ivins on the absurdities of Republicans. From these pieces one gets a sense of the vigor of the left's past—see FDR's secretary of the interior, Harold Ickes, attacking big-business Fascist America—and its perennial relevance to American life.
