Summary expansion
In the 1960s historians on both sides of the Atlantic began to push for an understanding of history 'from below'. In this collection, Staughton Lynd, himself a pioneer of this approach, laments the passing of fellow luminaries such as E.P. Thompson and Howard Zinn, and makes the case that contemporary academics and activists alike should take more seriously the stories and perspectives of Native Americans, slaves, rank-and-file workers, and other marginalised voices
