ABOUT THE BOOK
“This is the most relevant book of 2016.”
–Barbara Ehrenreich, New York Times bestselling author of Nickel and Dimed
Independent United States Senator Bernie Sanders—with a thirty-five-year career in public service, first as Burlington, Vermont’s mayor, then as Vermont’s sole representative to Congress, and currently as a United States senator—is now campaigning to become president of the United States. His goal is to build a movement to take back our country from the rich and powerful, and return it to its rightful owners—we, the American people.
In this short, accessible book, author Jonathan Tasini draws heavily from Sanders’ ample public record of speeches, statements, and interviews, and couples his working-class spirit with specific legislation he has championed on a number of core proposals that comprise a broader people’s agenda for America. The Essential Bernie Sanders and His Vision for America is a must-read for anyone who shares a vision for a forward-looking, sustainable, and more just United States of America, and is eager to change the course of history.
“This book is very useful for finding Bernie language on key issues and the many sections that connect the dots such as immigration and failed trade deals”
–Larry Cohen, past president Communications Workers (CWA) and advisor to Bernie2016
