Four inspiring, bold political plays that bring history alive as theater, from the Bancroft Prize-winning historian, cultural critic, and public intellectual.
BR>""Martin Duberman occupies a singularly important place in American culture.""--Catharine R. Stimpson, Dean and University Professor, NYU
