In The Encyclopedia of Rebels, Mel Freilicher continues his lifelong engagement with the intersections between history, fantasy, and memoir. The narrator throughout is a college teacher and community activist struggling against despair. With the help of radical heroes, famous and obscure, who devoted their lives to fighting tyranny, he rises to the call of irony. You could call this book both an outrageous comedy and a credible look at the world we live in.
