Americans in Revolt

During the election, pundits and politicos missed the anger and outrage that was simmering under the surface — we’ll talk about what comes next. The United States is witnessing a moment of unprecedented political engagement and social activism. Pundits who once fretted about Americans’ apathy have, in the last few years, borne witness to uprisings and protests across the country: the growth of the Tea Party, the successful fight for a $15 minimum wage, #BlackLivesMatter, Occupy Wall Street, #noDAPL, and the grassroots networks that supporting presidential candidates like Bernie Sanders. In NECESSARY TROUBLE, Jaffe leads readers into the heart of these movements, explaining what has made ordinary Americans, most of whom have no experience, to become activists and leaders working for a better world.
