Straight talk simple tunes with a lifting quality these songs have been tested in the fire of the people's struggle all around the world. They emerged quietly and anonymously in the vanguard of apparently lost causes, where men of good will have fought to keep this a decent world to live in. 100 topical folk, union, and international songs with guitar chords and piano arrangements. Go Down Moses, Los Cuatro Generales, We Shall Not Be Moved, Which Side Are You On? and the others came not from the pens of famous cmposers, but from the hearts of little men, caught up in the history-old battle for freedom and security; yet now these songs form a part of the universal language of liberty.... This is a folio of freedom folklore, a weapon against war and reaction, and a singing testament to the future. With foreword by Alan Lomax and preface by Ben Botkin.
