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.
