Weekly highlights: JSTOR & The art of protest
A lot of publishers are making content available for free to help students and researchers during the current restrictions that many institutions face. Every week the ISS Library highlights one of these collections or titles while keeping current events in mind. This week's highlight: JSTOR which includes The art of protest: culture and activism from the Civil Rights movement to the present.
JSTOR is a staple in the ISS Library collection, and in response to the corona crisis, many publishers have made their books on the JSTOR platform available for free, until June 30, 2020. A full title list of freely available book can be found here (this list overlaps with titles that were already in our collection.)
One highlight from this list is the second edition of The art of protest: culture and activism from the Civil Rights movement to the present. Now thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition of T. V. Reed's acclaimed work offers engaging accounts of ten key progressive movements in postwar America, from the African American struggle for civil rights beginning in the 1950s to Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter in the twenty-first century.
