Praise For…


"As a longtime fighter for human rights, I was moved and inspired by Fierce Legion of Friends. It’s encouraging to know whose shoulders we stand on: the millions of people who have worked for human rights for more than 200 years. I recommend this book to anybody who wants incentive to keep working for social justice."—Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Speaker, U.S. House of Representatives

"A stirring history of human rights campaigns over the centuries—vividly described, intelligently assessed. There is both information and inspiration in this valuable book." —Howard Zinn

"Linda Rabben has done everyone who cares about human rights a great service with her comprehensive history. . . . As she demonstrates so well, the struggle for justice is no mere fledgling but has solid roots." —William B. Schulz, Executive Director, Amnesty International USA
