Product Details


The story of Ronald Dellums’s twenty-seven years in Congress is not just about a wild-eyed radical, a self-described ‘commie pinko Afro-topped bell-bottomed dude from Berkeley’ who earned the love of friends and the respect of enemies. It is about a man who made strategic and deliberate decisions about how and when and for how long to promote his causes, to ignore insult and outlast exclusion, to be a gentleman rather than a firebrand. –Megan Rosenfeld, The Washington Post

“A staunch advocate of the principles of justice and fair play. Ronald Dellums’s book offers current and future generations of activists a compelling and useful blueprint for democratic social change.” –John J. Sweeney, President, AFL-CIO

“For twenty-seven years, no one has personified the struggle for peace with economic and social justice as Ronald Dellums has.” –Gordon Clark, Executive Director, Peace Action

“Whether railing against apartheid in South Africa, covert wars in Asia or Latin America, wasteful military budgets or dehumanizing bureaucratic practices, Dellums elevated the entire proceedings with his soaring speeches from the House floor.” —The Nation

“For twenty-seven years, Dellums established himself as a figure like no one who had served before–an unrepentant radical who took the battle from the streets to the floor of Congress.” –John Nichols, The Progressive
