Waking The Sleeping Giant

Waking the Sleeping Giant tells the story of the attempt to build a 21st century progressive movement in the United States against the backdrop of the 2016 election. From the presidential campaign trail with Bernie Sanders to a local race in rural West Virginia, from a mass sit-in on the U.S. Capitol steps to the struggle for racial justice in Los Angeles, it makes sense of this moment in American politics, probing widespread discontent, Donald Trump’s dramatic victory, and the challenges ahead.
