Let’s hear it from Anna Quindlen, Theodore Roosevelt, Michael Moore, Oscar Wilde, Bill Clinton, Howard Dean, Rosa Parks, Toni Morrison, George Orwell, John F. Kennedy, Margaret Sanger, Carl Sagan, Walter Cronkite, Jesse Jackson, and many, many more. Read them. Share them. And raise your voice. In a political and media environment dominated by conservative interests, liberals need to be heard, without distortion and in their own words. Compiled from speeches, memoirs, biographies, blogs, historical manifestos, and many other sources, this arsenal against the encroaching conservative mindset offers wisdom, perspective, advice, and humor from the keenest progressive minds, both past and present, and from around the world.

It also includes “Callous and Clueless Quotes from the Right” to remind readers just how dangerous right-wing discourse has become. A perfect resource for writers, bloggers, researchers, activists, speechwriters, teachers, and students, What Liberals Believe will appeal to anyone who has grown weary of the extremism of the shameless right.
