Praise

“Before 2018, strikes had become so rare in this country that hardly anyone knew what they were. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, they began. Not in left-wing cities but in the reddest of red states. Not of white men in factories but of teachers, many of them women, many of them of color. Eric Blanc spent months with the strikers, talking to them on picket lines, listening to them in meetings, sharing with them on Facebook threads, and more. Like Orwell in Barcelona, he’s given us a first-hand report from the front lines, making sense of the most improbable political story of an improbable decade. This is exhilarating reading about a movement that will be shaping politics for decades to come.”
—Corey Robin, author of The Reactionary Mind: Conservatism from Edmund Burke to Donald Trump

“Eric Blanc has written the best on-the-ground description and explanation of the red state teachers’ revolt. He was there and he understands that what happened is historic. The brave teachers who walked out in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, and other red states started a powerful trend. They give hope that the reactionary politics of the past forty years may be reversed by working people who realize that ‘enough is enough.’ Blanc’s enthralling description of their struggles is a chronicle that should be widely read.”
—Diane Ravitch, author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System

“Read this book to understand the many important lessons educators so powerfully taught about what it will take to rebuild a working-class movement, defeat Trumpism, and take on the billionaires.”
—Jane McAlevey, author of No Shortcuts: Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age
