Tbook published by Microcosm Publishing, Firebrands is "full of art, American history, and dangerous information. These beautifully illustrated mini-poster pages showcase radicals, dissidents, folk singers, and rabble-rousers, from Emma Goldman to Tupac, Pablo Neruda to Fred Hampton.

As say editors Shaun Slifer and Bec Young in the introduction, the book is for "anyone who has sat trembling with frustration and disappointment in a history class that was neither stimulating nor inclusive. It's for those tired of hauling to classes heavy textbooks that have been carefully removed of anything interesting or useful. It's for all our ancestors, especially those misrepresented in those textbooks, left out because they were too brown, too female, too poor, too queer, too uneducated, too disabled, or because they daydreamed too much."

This is a real people's history, a book packed with dynamite, desire, and above all, courage."
