William M. Mandel (1999). Saying No to Power. Berkeley, CA: Creative Arts.

“Many more people like to read about human lives than about history. I want people to know the history of how ordinary Americans learned to struggle for their own interests from the Great Depression to this day. As a radio personality (my program ran 37 years), a member of the Free Speech Movement at the University of California, an ‘unfriendly witness’ before the McCarthy Committee and the House Un-American Activities Committee, a civil rights activist South and North, and a recognized Soviet-affairs scholar (Fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution, etc.), I have been able to present a social history of the U.S. in this century in the form of the autobiography of an individual who has led a particularly exciting life.”
