Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot un-educate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. Cesar Chavez Address to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco, Nov. 9, 1984 ”

I admit it.  I don’t  read many adoption-related books. Living adaption is bad enough and takes too much time anyway. There are some books, though, that have greatly influenced my thinking and/or I’ve enjoyed  over the last three decades that I I think are important for any bastard rights activist to access.  I’m listing those below plus some activist books that shaped me and Bastard Nation.

You will notice a good amount of books covering the Progressive Era.  As a Progressive Era historian by training I think it is very important to know that the current adoption mess in the US has its roots in Progressive reform which didn’t turn out so good after all.

Mea culpa!  I wasn’t too careful when linking whether these titles go to hard copy books to Kindle. Kindle. Some are available in both forms, some not.

Post Script:  After compiling this list it’s apparent that I’ve read more on adoption  than I thought I did.  It doesn’t seem like it.
