Praise

“both a visual treat and an edifying look at alternative visual culture.” —Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“A terrific appraisal of culture’s gypsies, tramps and thieves, worthy of the editors’ judgment: Obituaries for bohemia have, in short, always been premature.””—Kirkus Reviews

“Engaging, informative and inspiring.” JOE SACCO, author of Palestine

“Great introduction to an American century of influences, individuals and scenes producing ideas for the future to engage.” SARAH SCHULMAN, author of The Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Imagination

“Words become graphic, and the graphics bring Bohemia alive in this wonderful history compiled by Buhle and Berger. There is nothing worse than being severed from one’s own roots, as demonstrated by decades of identity movements; there is nothing worse than being stripped of one’s heritage, unless it’s the theft of identity by thieving oppressors. This graphic anthology beautifully reconstructs the roots of America’s counter-culture from the lost stories of men and women, black and white, gay and straight, who were the original refuseniks of Bohemia. I can’t wait for more.” Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties, former State Senator and leader of Sixties peace, justice and environmental movements

 Praise for Buhle’s Wobblies:

“Excavates an essential part of American history … and does so with style, great graphics, and no punches pulled.”—Luc Sante

“The excitement and inspiration of their creative and courageous work is brilliantly
captured in this wonderful graphic history.”—Noam Chomsky

Praise for Paul Buhle and Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the American Empire:

“Ingenious in its conception and brilliant in execution. It is urgently necessary for our times: read this book and see how to raise your voice against all the forces that would drown you out. A modern activist’s primer!”—Ben Affleck
