SWCoalition Van JonesVan Jones just released his new book, Rebuilding the Dream. This book elevates the conversation about rebuilding Dr. King’s Dream and the American Dream (2.0 for the 21st Century). As the first former Obama official to release a book, Van Jones offers a unique insider-outsider perspective.

He explains SEVEN crucial missteps by the White House and by social change movements since 2008. He brilliantly analyzes the rise of the Tea Party and Occupy movements and lays out a strategic game plan for the next chapter –turning anger into action, protest into power, and suffering into solutions.

Rebuild the Dream is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how the “hope” bubble burst–and how to re-energize our movement. By ordering NOW, we can put economic justice on the bestseller list and help to rebuild our movement.
