Great Books for Summer Reading 2016

Every summer we have a tradition of offering readers a healthy selection of great books for your summer reading lists. We invite contributors to choose their favorite social movements/protest-related book of the past couple years, whether scholarly, activist, or fiction, and write a short review. In past years, the selection of books has been diverse, and we hope to offer something of interest to everyone.

Heidi Reynolds-Stenson, University of Arizona (essay)
Green is the New Red by Will Potter

Jonathan Coley, Monmouth College (essay)
Reforming Sodom: Protestants and the Rise of Gay Rights by Heather White

Sharon Quinsaat, Grinnell College (essay)
Pain, Pride, and Politics: Social Movement Activism and the Sri Lankan Tamil Diaspora in Canada by Amarnath Amarasingam Immigrants Against the State: Yiddish and Italian Anarchism in America by Kenyon Zimmer

Many thanks to our contributors.

Editors in Chief,
Grace Yukich, David Ortiz, Rory McVeigh, Guillermo Trejo
