Description
In his contentious alternate history of the origins of American freedom, Thaddeus Russell disparages traditional icons of liberty like Adams, Jefferson, Carnegie, Rockefeller, Edison, Roosevelt, and Kennedy, arguing that it was those on the fringes of society whose subversive lifestyles helped legitimize the taboo and made America the land of the free. In vivid portraits of renegades and their "respectable" adversaries, Russell champions drunken workers who created the weekend, prostitutes who set the precedent for women's liberation, criminals who pioneered racial integration, unassimilated immigrants who gave us birth control, and brazen homosexuals who broke open America's sexual culture.

"Thaddeus Russell is a troublemaker for sure. Whether you call his book courageous or outrageous, his helter-skelter tour through the American past will make you gasp and make you question—as he does—the writing of 'history as usual'."—Nancy Cott
