"This wonderful collection of essays is not only a powerful indictment of late capitalism - the system that 'dulls and narrows human desire' - but also a fascinating survey of resistance voices, from the IWW to the Surrealists, from the 'Chicago Idea' Anarchists to Black Liberation. David Roediger persuasively shows that rebel poetry, free imagination, workers' direct action and Black freedom struggles are all part of the same great movement against the established order and its (miserable) ideology of 'whiteness.'" -Michael Lowy
