Gadflies of American Society

Foreword by Kathleen Krull

“Extremism tends to flourish in times of crisis,” writes Jules Archer. It comes in all shapes and sizes and attaches itself to various causes. You can find extremism at the beginning with the founding fathers, extremists in the eyes of the British government and you can most definitely find it today. Jules Archer chronicles a history of extremists such as:

  • Puritans,

  • Suffragettes,

  • The Klu Klux Klan,

  • and Prohibitionists.

  • With vintage cartoons and prints to further explain the subject, Jules Archer reports the fascinating history of protests in America.
