On the next Fresh Air, Dave Davies talks with historian H.W. Brands who considers the question of whether radical direct action or gradual reforms are the best means of achieving social change…he has a new book about the approach of two 19th century leaders toward ending slavery: fiery abolitionist John Brown, and President Abraham Lincoln. His book is the Zealot and the Emancipator. Join us
