"Despite our country’s bootstrap rhetoric, outsiders in this land of individualism rarely make a go of it alone. As the first essay in this collection—an analysis of the anti-slavery movement of the mid-nineteenth century—attempts to show, improving conditions for those who have been left out‚ hinges on the ability of the despised and downtrodden, and their allies, to band together in collective struggle and insist on their entitlements."—from the Introduction, Left Out

The lives of "outsiders" have been the focus of Martin Duberman’s work as a public intellectual for the past four decades. Best known for his biography of Paul Robeson, Duberman highlights the "banding together" of the excluded in Left Out. These identity-based movements—black power, gay liberation, feminism—have created a vital and controversial change in American consciousness in recent decades. Duberman’s collected essays trace this evolution of thought in lively and engaging language. Available here for the first time in paperback, this edition includes three new essays.

Presenting summations of Duberman’s views on such matters as race, foreign policy, gender, and sexuality, Left Out offers incisive analyses of the split between class-based and identity-based politics on the Left. As a white anti-racist, feminist man, socialist queer, and "godfather" of the gay studies movement, Duberman has taken many brave and prescient stands. His writing shows why he is considered a deeply moral and wise man.

"No matter the topic, Martin Duberman’s thoughtful and nuanced essays are written with a humanity and optimism all too rare in our cynical times."—Susan Faludi

"[Duberman] has engaged the greatest struggles of our times with an unflinching nerve, a wise heart and a brilliant intellect."—Jonathan Kozol

This substantial tome documents Duberman's many contributions to critical thought in such diverse areas as what he calls histories of oppression in terms of race, gender and sexuality, and foreign policy. Despite the eclectic range of issues on offer here, this collection is held together with Duberman's powerful polemical tone and effective demonstration of the interconnectedness of various forms of oppression. What makes the book such an effective tool for understanding some of the key Ideological battles fought by the Left over the past four decades is its incitement to action.

He was jailed, as a member, for a sit-in protest on the floor of the US Senate

Martin Bauml Duberman (born August 6, 1930) is an American historian, biographer, playwright, and gay rights activist. He was jailed, as a member, for a sit-in protest on the floor of the US Senate. His numerous essays on "The Black Struggle," "The Crisis of the Universities," "American Foreign Policy," and "Gender and Sexuality" have been collected in two volumes of his essays: The Uncompleted Past and Left Out: The Politics of Exclusion, 1964-1999. He came out as a gay man in an essay (December 10, 1972) in The New York Times.

Whether he's battling the neos over freedom for Gays and civil rights for blacks, whether he's twisting arms to write a book on the not-so-moral outlook on a good ol Southern boy, the works are solid and lively. A very clear and persuasive argument and reasoning why the Left is the only place left for those who care. Martin Duberman fully and completely erases the false distinction between scholar and activist, and shows how a clear moral vision must inform scholarship, and how only good scholarship can make for persuasive political activism.
