Activist New York: A History of People, Protest, and Politics is a book from author Steven H. Jaffe which details our City's long history of social activism reaching back all the way when it was still the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam. Over 304 pages, the author explores how New York City’s position as a center of commerce, finance, industry, media, and ethnic diversity, gives it a powerful and uniquely influential role in the relatively short history of American and global activism.
Activist New York surveys New York City’s long history of social activism from the 1650’s to the 2010’s. Bringing these passionate histories alive, Activist New York is a visual exploration of these movements, serving as a companion book to the highly-praised Museum of the City of New York exhibition of the same name.
