New Blog Format

Starting today, this blog is switching its title from “Progressive Liberty Blog” to “Great Americans Blog,” and changing its primary focus from “Reflections on Freedom, the Constitution, and Life in America” to “Radicals in Their Own Time: Four Hundred Years of Struggle for Liberty and Equal Justice in America.”

This change is in conjunction with the late December 2010 publication by Cambridge University Press of my book by the same name: “Radicals in Their Own Time: Four Hundred Years of Struggle for Liberty and Equal Justice in America.”

In posts to the blog, I will share vignettes of the five Americans who are profiled in the book: Roger Williams, Thomas Paine, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, W.E.B. Du Bois and Vine Deloria, Jr.

The book is listed for pre-sale on Amazon .

Here is Amazon’s description of the book:

Radicals in Their Own Time explores the lives of five Americans, with lifetimes spanning four hundred years, who agitated for greater freedom in America. Every generation has them: individuals who speak truth to power and crave freedom from arbitrary authority. This book makes two important observations in discussing Roger Williams, Thomas Paine, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, W.E.B. Du Bois, and Vine Deloria, Jr. First, each believed that government must broadly tolerate individual autonomy. Second, each argued that religious orthodoxy has been a major source of society’s ills – and all endured serious negative repercussions for doing so. The book challenges Christian orthodoxy and argues that part of what makes these five figures compelling is their willingness to pay the price for their convictions – much to the lasting benefit of liberty and equal justice in America.
