This eye-opening collection of documents ranging from the pre-Christian era to the present explores the undeniable power of social, political, and religious dissent throughout history and around the world. Voices of Protest is an inspiring and comprehensive look at the meaning of protest throughout history, in democratic and nondemocratic societies. It is also a rousing confirmation that individual and community action matters and has great influence. Collected here are more than 300 documents-- essays, letters, newspaper articles, court decisions, song lyrics, poetry, cartoons, and more-- that represent seven main categories of protest: Civil Rights; National Self- Determination; Economic Justice; Environmental Conservation; Religious Freedom and Morality; Peace and War; and International Political Freedoms. A small sampling of the entries includes Seneca Falls Declaration of Women's Rights; Fidel Castro's anti- American writings protesting cultural domination; John Muir's essay " The American Forests"; and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s letter from a Birmingham jail. The editors have framed the documents with concise original commentary that places each selection in a political, historical, and social context.

Daniel Lerner is a wine importer in New York City. He has spent more than twenty years involved in the New York City restaurant and wine industries as maitre d', sommelier, wine buyer, wine seller and consultant.Frank Lowenstein's first published writing was a review of activist singer U. Utah Philips's 1982 concert in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He has since published dozens of articles on environmental, economic, and scientific issues. He serves as Director of Forest Health Programs for The Nature Conservancy's Global Forest Partnership. He shares a home in western Massachusetts with co-editor Sheryl Lechner and their three sons.

Sheryl Lechner has been a freelance writer and editor since the 1980s. Her profiles and feature articles deal with topics such as women's rights, film, health, and the environment and have appeared in such publications, as Sierra, Audubon, Reform Judaism, the Boston Globe and Berkshire Living. She has worked as a reporter at three newspapers and served as a political and press staffer for city council members and a governor. Her original screenplay The Lobster Trap deals with issues of integrity and entrapment in the world of politics.
