The Other Eighties
Bradford Martin presents a history of political activism during the 1980s. The author reports that throughout the decade activists were focused on maintaining the progress made in years past against an ascendant conservative movement and the Reagan administration. Professor Martin explores many of the decade’s political movements, from AIDS activism and the nuclear freeze campaign to the denouncement of American corporate relations with South Africa’s apartheid government. Bradford Martin spoke at Books on the Square in Providence, Rhode Island. close
