from here to thereThis collection of unpublished talks and hard-to-find essays from legendary activist-historian Staughton Lynd blends themes that encourage the rejection of capitalist imperialism, while also seeking a transition to a newly organized world.

The dynamic collection provides reminiscence and analysis of the 1960s and a vision of how historians might immerse themselves in popular movements while maintaining their obligation to tell the truth.

A final group of presentations, entitled “Possibilities,” explores nonviolence, resistance to empire as a way of life, and what a working-class self-activity might mean in the 21st century.
