Bernie Sanders’s campaign for the presidency of the United States galvanized people all over the country, putting economic, racial, & social justice into the spotlight, & raised hope that Americans could take their country back from the billionaires & change the course of history.
In this book, Sanders tells the story of a passionate & principled political life. He describes how, after cutting his teeth in the Civil Rights movement, he helped build a grassroots political movement in Vermont, making it possible for him to become the first independent elected to the US House of Representatives in forty years. The story continues into the US Senate & presidential campaign.
“A grass-roots ‘how-to’ guide, especially helpful & inspirational for prospective independent candidates—a firsthand description of the career of the most successful American socialist politician in modern times.” (The Hill)
