The Portland Red Guide By Michael Munk


This Title Is Out Of Print

Ooligan Press is proud to release the second edition of Michael Munk’s The Portland Red Guide. This definitive guidebook, which includes maps and walking tours, artfully explores Portland, Oregon’s rich heritage of radical social dissent. Taking the reader beyond the common history book, Munk tells stories that many have forgotten, and links them to physical sites within the city. People and organizations that fought for equality and justice against the abusive powers of their day are given new life in this revelatory title. The Portland Red Guide is both a guidebook and an informal history that will expand your perspective on the city and its past. The book is divided by physical and topical entries, loosely grouped into the following chronological periods:

  • Nineteenth Century (Utopians and Marxists)
  • 1900–1930 (Wobblies and Socialists)
  • 1930s (Unions and Commies)
  • WWII–1960 (McCarthyism and Cold War)
  • 1960–1973 (Peaceniks and Civil Rights)
  • 1974–Present (Identities, Protests, and Environment
