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. Our progressive pick-related articles are archived below.
