50 Simple Things You Can Do to Fight the Rightby Earthworks Action Network
In classic Earthworks' easy-to-read style, 50 Simple Things you can do to Fight the Right offers inspirational yet practical advice for anyone wanting to reclaim democracy in America, outlining what steps can be taken to restore a balance of political power through everyday actions . . . and why they matter so much. From the simplest efforts (why bumper stickers count) to more committed ones (become a precinct captain) and everything in-between, this small volume packs a punch.
Aimed at anyone who is disgruntled with the current political quagmire of lies, deception, uncertainty in Iraq, or anyone who recognizes that our most basic freedoms (right to free speech, right to privacy, right to choose a marriage partner, right to fair elections, right to truthful and transparent media, to name a few) are slipping away, this book is a call to action. It encourages readers to stand up for their values, to reclaim patriotism and faith, and, together, to build truly democratic communities. This book has the potential to be a catalyst for all progressives, to take their concerns from a list of issues to a mass movement one that is expressed, consciously, by millions.

There are too many books that just whine about Bush and the Right Wing. So it is enormously refreshing to read positive ideas telling people what they can do to fight back. This book is terrific.
Insightful, informative, practical, to the point and very well researched. A fabulous resource. Kudos to the authors!
