Books – Saturday, Occupy and Strange Fruit: The Biography of a Song

I take a detailed look at three books with protest as subject. Saturday by Ian McKewan takes a look at a day in London in 2005 when the UK protests its involvement in the Iraqi War. Occupy is a series of collected pamphlets by Noam Chomsky that takes a look at the uprising season of occupation that was 2011. Strange Fruit is a detailed history by David Margolick that examines one of the most famous and well-known protest songs of all time
