Woody Guthrie: American Radical, 2011
By Will Kaufman
Unearthing the legendary folkie's deep roots in radical politics.
Woody Guthrie, American Radical reclaims the politically radical profile of America's greatest balladeer. Although he achieved a host of national honors and adorns U.S. postage stamps, and although his song "This Land Is Your Land" is often considered the nation's second national anthem, Woody Guthrie committed his life to the radical struggle.
