Product Details


The Rise of a New Left is an engrossing behind-the-scenes account of our decade’s breakout political movement. It is also an invaluable second draft of history that readers and scholars will consult for many years to understand the opportunities and challenges of socialist organizing in the first decades of the 21st century.”
—Atossa Araxia Abrahamian, author of The Cosmopolites: The Coming of the Global Citizen

“I was on the verge of getting sad about politics, again. Then I picked up The Rise of a New Left, I was reminded of all the energy on the young left, and I started feeling hope again. If you don’t know this movement, you could find no better way to learn about it than this book.”
—Doug Henwood, host, Behind the News, KPFA

“An exceptionally well-informed report from the ranks of the most dynamic, constructive movement in contemporary American politics. Few books can be profitably read as history, journalism, and political field manual, but this one succeeds on all three fronts.”
—Patricia O’Toole, author of The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made

“An important primer on the young activists and politicians whose mandate is nothing less than saving our country.”
—Gary Shteyngart, author of Our Country Friends: A Novel

“An insider’s account of how young progressives are influencing American politics and culture…an inspirational introduction to young progressives and the causes they’re fighting for.”
Publishers Weekly

“A well-reported introduction to a growing, controversial movement among the younger electorate.”

“A sobering yet inspirational record of what leftists have been up to post-Bernie….by highlighting the work of a diverse array of left organizations and their leaders, most of whom are women, Lipsitz does justice to the Left as a whole.”
—James J. Jackson, Democratic Left

“Lipsitz’s The Rise of a New Left: How Young Radicals Are Shaping the Future of American Politics is the best book I’ve read on the evolution of radical politics in recent years.”
—John Nichols, Cap Times
