A legendary publication in the history of photography, William Klein’s New York Is Good & Good for You (1956) made him an international sensation. Rereleased with photos from the original book and new work from his personal collection, New York 1954.55 (Manchester, England: Dewi Lewis, 1995) showcases how Klein redefined the art of photography.

In A Queer Geography (New York: Crown Publishing, 1996), author Frank Browning maps the regional influences on the rites and rituals of gay men. Browning’s quest takes him from Kentucky to Italy, all the while raising social and psychological questions about gay life.

An unabashed progressive response to William Bennett’s conservative The Book of Virtues (1993), A Call to Character: A Family Treasury (New York: HarperCollins, 1995) by Colin Greer and Herbert Kohl is a collection of stories, poems, and fables designed to help children deal with moral decisions.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
