Overview

In These Times, the national, biweekly magazine of news and opinion, has provided groundbreaking coverage of the labor movement, the environment, feminism, grassroots politics, minority communities, and the media for twenty-five years. Filled with new writing commissioned specially for this anniversary volume, images, and text highlights of the last quarter-century in the magazine, Appeal to Reason: The First 25 Years of In These Times showcases contributors to the magazine like Noam Chomsky, David Brower, and Alice Walker, to name just a few. But it also asks an important question: Where do we go from here?
For answers, Appeal to Reason turns to more than twenty leading progressive writers—including Barbara Ehrenreich, Juan Gonzalez, Salim Muwakkil, and Robert W. McChesney—who take a fresh look at the lessons of the past and suggest directions for the future. Exploring issues ranging from globalization and criminal justice to the environment and culture, Appeal to Reason lays a political and intellectual foundation for the debates, discussions, and movements of the next twenty-five years.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Craig Aaron, managing editor of In These Times, gathers works from the muckraking newsmagazine's 25 years of publication in Appeal to Reason: 25 Years In These Times. Barbara Ehrenreich and Ellen Willis write about feminism and abortion; Alice Walker sounds off on race and crime; Noam Chomsky expresses his views on "democracy's slow death"; and Arundhati Roy speaks out on diversity and resisting hegemony. Other journalists write on war and peace, cultural criticism and the environment. An attractive, almost square shaped layout works well with the text, which is punctuated by riveting photographs and images. (June) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
