Product Details


“It’s high time that someone resurrected authentic ‘populism,’ activism from below, and showed how it can be the path to a better future.  That’s done very convincingly in D.D. Guttenplan’s fine book, The Next Republic: The Rise of a New Radical Majority, introducing us along the way to some wonderful people and their achievements, interspersed with carefully executed and pertinent historical interludes.  A timely and instructive call to action.” —Noam Chomsky

“Don Guttenplan has written a profoundly subversive book. He briefly touches base with a few notable progressives (like the Bern and Zephyr Teachout), but at a moment when Trumpism, cynicism, and corruption seem to reign supreme in our politics—in the modest guise of a report on the battles of a series of quasi-anonymous, persistent anti-establishmentarians and political loners—he has made a compelling case for hope and optimism about the future of our democracy, and en passant he has put the meaning of our republic in its historical context.” —Victor Navasky, publisher emeritus of The Nation

“At a moment when history and truth are under attack, and the survival of our republic is once again in doubt, The Next Republic is a timely, humane, and forceful narrative of our insurgent political moment—and a deeply reported contribution to the fight for a progressive future in America.” —Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher, The Nation

Nation political reporter Guttenplan details a cautiously optimistic prognosis for a progressive American future, grounded in a resurgence of populism and inclusive, intersectional, anti-corporate ‘majoritarian revolt.’ … The profiles [of contemporary activists] are smoothly interspersed with chapters analyzing moments in American history when the needs of everyday people came into conflict with moneyed interests and existing power structures and ‘our ancestors confronted and overcame the dominant oligarchy of their day’ … Progressives will find this a hopeful and inspiring book.” Publishers Weekly
