Wielding Words like Weapons in Choice Magazine

“…Featured are original and extended versions of (Ward Churchill's) most well-known pieces, here entitled “The Ghosts of 9-1-1” and “Some People Push Back,” but recognized foremost as “the little Eichmanns” essays. While the inclusion of four book reviews might be questioned, Churchill’s pieces on Cherokee anthropologist Robert K.

The Future Generation, Revolutionary Mothering and more in Punk Mama

 

"I bought this radical parenting anthology several years ago at Atomic Books and instantly fell in love. China talks about being a single mother in the 90’s and how welfare reform affected the lives of single mothers, herself included. She talks about parenting, politics, and survival in a world that sometimes seems like it would sooner see parents drown than extend a hand. This book’s theme is always going to be relevant; we need China’s ideas on community now more than ever. Oh, and she’s reissuing the book, so be on the lookout!" —Punk Mama
