Abe Osheroff

Abe Osheroff



Most people knew Abe Osheroff as an activist--from the frontlines of the Spanish Civil War to the picket lines of the U.S. labor movement, from the struggles for civil rights in Mississippi to the work for human rights in Nicaragua. For most of his 92 years, Osheroff threw himself into the fray with rare energy and enthusiasm. A truly organic intellectual, the following pages put forth the wisdom built up over a lifetime of commitment to the "radical humanism" that defined his politics and philosophy.
