Summary

Job outsourcing. Slashed paychecks. A war without end, fatally mismanaged. Americans on both the Right and Left are tired of being disenfranchised by corrupt politicians and are organizing to change the status quo. In his invigorating new book, David Sirota investigates this uprising, taking us into the trenches where real change is happeningfrom the headquarters of the most powerful third party in America to an ExxonMobil shareholder meeting to the quasi-military staging area of a vigilante force on the Mexican border. The Uprisingis essential reading for anyone who wants to look beyond presidential politics at the new populism that is reshaping the American political landscape. "Sirota reports cleverly and in pleasing detail about a complex world of political conflict." Washington Post "Compelling...Rooted in history but as contemporary as this morning's newspaper, David Sirota gives us reason to hope." Thomas Frank, author ofWhat's the Matter with Kansas? "Audacious... Sirota has a true gift for phrase-making and the pithy comment." The Providence Journal "David Sirota is the most important progressive voice we have in this country." Matt Taibbi, national political correspondent forRolling Stone
