"Of all the books analyzing the what happened in 2016, Heather Gautney's is unique in its use of a movement lens. For movement builders, there are many critical lessons here about striking the balance between candidates, issues, and deeper organizing." -Larry Cohen, Board Chair of Our Revolution and former President of the Communication Workers of America "This is the powerful and insightful book we have been waiting for on the historic Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Heather Gautney provides the most sophisticated and subtle analysis of the most significant progressive insurgency within the decrepit electoral political system of the U.S.A. Don't miss it!" -Cornel West, author of Race Matters
