About Troublemaker: Saying No to Power

This is a book of life, the life of a unique figure within the US Left from the 1950s all the way into the early decades of the twenty-first century. It tells a story too little heard in the current outpouring of Baby Boomer memoirs. Frank Emspak’s journey connects the Old Left with the New Left, unions in the industrial era and beyond, and the struggle to communicate to a wide public with all the modern means available.
