As part of its commitment to providing independent information and resources to its readers, Truthout chooses a "Progressive Pick" every week: an independent book or DVD that we find thought-provoking and insightful. Each week, we provide articles, excerpts and interviews about the Progressive Pick, and also offer you a chance to receive the book or DVD with a donation to Truthout. Related articles are archived below; click here to view the full catalog of available Progressive Picks.
