While the radical waves of the Sixties and Seventies in the United States have been substantially documented, it was left to Kabir Suman, musician, activist, broadcaster, to bring together a series of interviews he had taken in the 1980s, to offers a sense of the politics of protest in the Reagan years. The interviewees include some of the foremost thinkers and cultural figures of the period, taking a firm position against the aggressive, imperialist designs of the United States, which by now have become only more glaringly evident. Speaking out of their oppositionist encounters of the state, they underscore the role of culture in the defence of democracy and human rights, and spell out resistance strategies and alternatives that remain equally valid even today all over the world.
