Here is a collection of the most salient hard-hitting, no-nonsense quotes that have made Bernie Sanders the beloved leader of our revolution. The longest-serving independent in US congressional history, Sanders currently serves as US senator from Vermont and is in the race for the Democratic Party’s nomination for president. Hundreds of thousands of people across the country are flocking to Sanders’s events to hear his wisdom on political corruption, distribution of wealth, international relations, immigration, health-care reform, climate change, education, and equality. Now fans and critics alike can hear what Bernie has to say just by picking up this book. Known for his firm opinions on the economy, health care, and the environment, Bernie Sanders is a self-declared democratic socialist. He has called for free state college and university tuition, spoken out against Wall Street practices, insisted on increasing the minimum wage, and demanded tax reform. He has proposed significant health-care reforms, championed causes for veterans and senior citizens, and urged the government to address climate change in a proactive manner. “A political revolution,” his campaign slogan, befits his assertion that the country is in need of an overhaul—economically, socially, and politically. As his grassroots campaign continues to explode, his social media presence flourishes and his events are attended in record-breaking numbers. Feel the Bern!

The New York Times bestseller! When Bernie Sanders began his race for the presidency, it was considered by the political establishment and the media to be a “fringe” campaign, something not to be taken seriously. After all, he was just an Independent senator from a small state with little name recognition. His campaign had no money, no political organization, and it was taking on the entire Democratic Party establishment. By the time Sanders’s campaign came to a close, however, it was clear that the pundits had gotten it wrong. Bernie had run one of the most consequential campaigns in the modern history of the country. He had received more than 13 million votes in primaries and caucuses throughout the country, won twenty-two states, and more than 1.4 million people had attended his public meetings. Most important, he showed that the American people were prepared to take on the greed and irresponsibility of corporate America and the 1 percent. In Our Revolution, Sanders shares his personal experiences from the campaign trail, recounting the details of his historic primary fight and the people who made it possible. And for the millions looking to continue the political revolution, he outlines a progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda that will create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all—and ultimately transform our country and our world for the better. For him, the political revolution has just started. The campaign may be over, but the struggle goes on.

Missionary. Radical. Hippy. Revolutionary. Red Mayor. Pragmatist. Socialist. Hot from the campaign trail, a vivid new biography that goes inside Bernie Sanders’s contradictions, his unusual life, and his electrifying quest to make the American dream a reality for all. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may be the least political person in politics—a brusque, unpolished, Jewish Socialist from Brooklyn with deep-seated convictions and distaste for small talk. He is also, at seventy-four, the rising star of the Democratic party, whose underdog bid for the presidential nomination has hit the marks of a serious contender: He’s competitive with, and in some cases leading, Hillary Clinton in early state polls. He’s closed the fundraising gap, and is drawing crowds of thousands to campaign rallies. Why? Because where most candidates are calculating and rehearsed, Sanders is frank, authentic, and impassioned. For thirty years, he has spoken out against income inequality, environmental injustice, and privatized healthcare. Now—amid an ever-widening chasm between the rich and the rest, and growing voter disenchantment—the country is listening. With reporting from inside the campaign, personal relationships with Sanders’s friends and colleagues, and meticulous research, noted reporter Harry Jaffe offers an engaging, insightful portrait of the ultimate outsider candidate, charting Sanders’s course from Brooklyn to Burlington, and now to Des Moines and beyond. Within the untold narrative of Sanders’s origins and political development, he also examines the growth of the progressive movement, and the recent developments—including the Occupy movement, the Great Recession, and the rise of the millennial generation—that have shifted Sanders’s views from fringe to focal point. At once a captivating biography, and a thought-provoking window into the contemporary political landscape, this will become the defining account of a pivotal moment in American history.

This book explores the new politics of class in 21st century Britain. It shows how the changing shape of the class structure since 1945 has led political parties to change, which has both reduced class voting and increased class non-voting. This argument is developed in three stages. The first is to show that there has been enormous social continuity in class divisions. The authors demonstrate this using extensive evidence on class and educational inequality, perceptions of inequality, identity and awareness, and political attitudes over more than fifty years. The second stage is to show that there has been enormous political change in response to changing class sizes. Party policies, politicians' rhetoric, and the social composition of political elites have radically altered. Parties offer similar policies, appeal less to specific classes, and are populated by people from more similar backgrounds. Simultaneously the mass media have stopped talking about the politics of class. The third stage is to show that these political changes have had three major consequences. First, as Labour and the Conservatives became more similar, class differences in party preferences disappeared. Second, new parties, most notably UKIP, have taken working class voters from the mainstream parties. Third, and most importantly, the lack of choice offered by the mainstream parties has led to a huge increase in class-based abstention from voting. Working class people have become much less likely to vote. In that sense, Britain appears to have followed the US down a path of working class political exclusion, ultimately undermining the representativeness of our democracy. They conclude with a discussion of the Brexit referendum and the role that working class alienation played in its historic outcome.

It's time for the Bernie-tale to be told. Bernie Sanders didn't know he would spark a progressive phenomenon. He probably never dreamed that he'd enter the realms of first-name fame. But he did. Because he took on several modern-day Goliaths. And showed no fear. In days of old, bards would have created lyrics about his adventures. Bernie-tales would have been captured in fire-side stories and ballads, memorized, embellished and spread throughout the land by traveling minstrels. His heroic story would be passed down for decades and centuries. Generations of young people would be inspired to go forth and set their own sparks loose in the world. And so it is today. We need to celebrate our heroes. It's in our DNA. We may not gather together around the fire these days, but we still hunger for stories to share. For tales with the heart to inspire our own hero's journeys. The Bernie-tale is here. Now. And it's all dressed up for bedtime.
