Jennifer Frost is senior lecturer in history at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and the author of An Interracial Movement of the Poor Community Organizing and the New Left in the 1960s, published by NYU Press.
"Frost has created a usable past capable of enriching our understanding of the difficulties of democracy and the tough realities of American politics." --Peace & Change "The finest study to date on the ill-fated Economic research and Action Project...An outstanding work." --Choice "Frost contributes to a more nuanced understanding of the era and pushes past stereotypes of the sixties." --Journal of Social History "Frost has provided a coherent examination of the role of American women during the poor people's movement of the 1960s...there are many different things for scholars to admire about this book." --American Historical Review "I highly recommend this very accessible book...[it] includes rich archival and oral historical detail that should appeal to historians of the 1960s. For those of us interested in a more complex and intersectional analysis of the 1960s, this book is a welcome addition to the historical record." -- Contemporary Sociology "...A solid contribution to the literature on the history of community organizing and radical resistance, one that can also add to contemporary debates about rebuilding public life and reviving democratic dissent and practice in America." -- The Journal of American History
