About this Item

208 pages, some soiling to fore-edge, DJ somewhat soiled and stained, small tears to DJ edges. Inscribed by the author. From a Kirkus review posted on-line: This is about the iconoclasts of our society who live by personal conviction -- men and women in protest against great horrors to the small daily irks. These snapshots of the disturbers of the peace can be taken simply as an album of nonconformist eccentricity, or they can be viewed as evidence of the existential premise that in revolt lies the way to salvation. It will depend upon the reader. Profiles of constructive nonconformists who refuse to accept injustice, corporate irresponsibility, and government deception. Introduction by Robert Coles. McCarthy had also served as a speech writer for Sargent Shriver. Colman McCarthy (born March 24, 1938, in Glen Head, New York, an American journalist, teacher, lecturer, pacifist, progressive, an anarchist, and long-time peace activist, directs the Center for Teaching Peace in Washington, D.C. From 1969 to 1997, he wrote columns for The Washington Post. His topics ranged from politics, religion, health, and sports to education, poverty, and peacemaking. Washingtonian magazine called him "the liberal conscience of The Washington Post." Smithsonian magazine said he is "a man of profound spiritual awareness." He has written for The New Yorker, The Nation, The Progressive, The Atlantic, The New York Times, and Reader's Digest. Since 1999, he has written biweekly columns for National Catholic Reporter.
