From Library Journal:

The American Left consists not just of Communists or Socialists. As illustrated in this excellent update of the original 1990 work edited by three academic historians, it contains a rich mix of political, social, and artistic movements. The 650 entries, written by scholars, artists, and activists, cover more than individuals, organizations, and publications, also venturing into such diverse areas as folk music, the disability rights movement, labor, radio, psychology, and sf and fantasy. Entries new to the second edition include "ACT-UP," "jazz," "Leonard Peltier," "Reconstruction," and the "Young Lords Party." These additions cover current events and social and cultural topics. Individual entries run from one paragraph to several pages, and all close with a brief bibliography and cross references. The new edition also contains several minor organizational changes, such as combining the separate name-subject indexes into a single index. Also included is a separate glossary of terms regularly appearing in the work, a brief bibliographic essay, and a broad subject outline of entries. All libraries with the first edition (LJ 6/15/90) need the second on its shelves. Recommended for larger academic and public libraries.AStephen L. Hupp, Urbana Univ. Lib., OH
