Overview

In the past 25 years, the causes and lifestyles espoused in underground newspapers have evolved beyond the paradigms of liberal and conservative, and the newspapers have matured from throw-aways to respected publications of divergent viewpoints. UMI®'s Alternative Press collection allows students and scholars to examine and compare the editorial content of these publications.

Beginning with papers dated 1986, this ongoing collection gathers and films newspapers and periodicals extolling a wide variety of alternative lifestyles and ideas. It contains over 100 distinctive titles such as:

 

  • Animal's Agenda 
  • The Black Scholar 
  • Common Boundary 
  • Feminist Bookstore News 
  • Fifth Estate 
  • Horizons 
  • Industrial Worker 
  • Mother Earth News 
  • Mother Jones 
  • Peace and Freedom 
  • Saturday Night 
  • Sierra 
  • The Sun 
  • Washington Blade 

The Alternative Press collection is a valuable record of diverse thought, opinion, and lifestyle from around the world. The views expressed in these publications are relevant to the contemporary study of history, education, literature, journalism, sociology, law, psychology, and other subjects.
