How One Tough Broad from the Bronx Fought Jim Crow and Joe McCarthy, Pissed Off Jimmy Carter, Battled for the Rights of Women and Workers, Rallied Against War and for the Planet, and Shook Up Politics Along the Way
"A remarkable work of oral history [and] a fond, provocative testament to a remarkable life."*
"A fabulous read about a breed of politician now largely extinct . . . Levine and Thom have crafted a history that brings to life one of the great political personalities of the twentieth century."
—ALICE ECHOLS, Bookforum
"Incorporates . . . interviews with excerpts from the influential feminist's unpublished memoirs to create a kind of conversation about the woman, the politician and the times in which she lived."
—*SUSAN SALTER REYNOLDS, Los Angeles Times
"Abzug was certainly a major player in our change in attitudes in the second part of the past century [and] Suzanne Braun Levine and Mary Thom give us a fascinating glimpse into [an] inspirational but undeniably peculiar period that is receding, all too quickly, into the past."
—CAROLYN SEE, The Washington Post
"[A] fluid, sharply edited book . . . Abzug was a force of nature, and the stories about her are consistently feisty."—JON DOLAN, Time Out New York
"Explodes with the energy that Bella Abzug possessed." —DONNA BRAZILE
