Front porch politics - the forgotten heyday of American activism in the 1970s and 1980s by Foley, Michael S.

Front porch politics - the forgotten heyday of American activism in the 1970s and 1980s

"An on-the-ground history of ordinary Americans who took to the streets when political issues became personal. It is widely believed that Americans of the 1970s and '80s were exhausted by the upheavals of the '60s and eager to retreat to the private realm. When they did take action, it was mainly to express their disillusionment with government by supporting the right. In fact, as Michael Stewart Foley shows, neither of these assumptions is correct. On the community level, the 1970s and '80s saw

The battles of Monte Cassino - the campaign and its controversies
