Sustaining Activism is a highly unusual book, full of rich insights and fun to read.”

—Marc Edelman, Hunter College and Graduate Center, CUNY

“Just as the women of Ibiraiaras and Sananduva invited Emma and Jeff into their kitchens and meeting halls, so the unique father-daughter dialogue that unfolds in this sophisticated yet highly accessible book lets us into those women’s lives.”

—Sonia E. Alvarez, Leonard J. Horwitz Professor of Latin American Politics and Studies
University of Massachusetts, Amherst

“This absorbing book—combining history, politics, sociology, memoir—is ultimately beyond category, much like the individual activists in Brazil whom it traces. Unique individuals can and do join forces to make a movement, as the authors have joined forces to make this book. Jeffrey W. Rubin and Emma Sokoloff-Rubin, each a distinct voice within a father-daughter team, exemplify the complex unities they write about so eloquently.”

—Mary Jo Salter, poet and Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities,
Johns Hopkins University

“Intriguing and informative.”
