The Exciting Rise of the New U.S. Leftist Movement (w/ Raina Lipsitz)

Journalist Raina Lipsitz’s book, The Rise of a New Left: How Young Radicals Are Shaping the Future of American Politics, profiles the young leftists who are bringing socialism back to American politics. Raina looks at high-profile campaigns like those of AOC and Bernie Sanders, but also at the left political victories on city councils and in state legislatures that often fly under the radar. To anyone who wants to feel hopeful that a new generation of political leaders capable of taking on the most serious challenges we face is rising, Raina’s book offers a cautiously optimistic assessment of the possibilities for a new movement, and moment, in American politics.
