About this title
After taking Davis D. Joyce’s course in Oklahoma history, a student once said, I saw an Oklahoma I’d never seen before.”
This is a splendid collection of writings in the true spirit of a people’s history’. It begins with a delightful, wry overlook at Oklahoma by George Milburn, and goes on to tell about the state in way rarely seen in traditional histories. There are accounts of progressivism, of socialism, of labor radicalism, of Indian resistance, of black struggle against segregation, of women’s campaigns for abortion rights. It includes fascinating portraits of people, some famous, some obscure, who were engaged in these struggles. I hope this become a model for similar volumes on other states.” Howard Zinn, author of People’s History of the United States.
