From the back cover:

In this provocative collection from the New York Times bestselling team behind Rad American Women A-Z, Rad Women Worldwide, and Rad Girls Can, each letter of the alphabet portrays a significant moment in America's progressive history--one that isn't always covered in history classes. Paired with dynamic paper-cut art by Miriam Stahl, the entries by Kate Schatz explore several centuries of politics, culture, art, activism, and liberation. From A is for Alcatraz, and the Native American occupation of 1969 to Z is for Zuccotti Park, and the birth of Occupy Wall Street, each engaging, fact-filled narrative illustrates an eye-opening moment that shows us how we got to now--and what we need to know about our histories to create a just and sustainable future.
