Crashing the Party: From the Bernie Sanders Campaign to a Progressive Movement

by Heather Gautney
£9.99   paperback  Verso Books (2018)

Crashing the Party: From the Bernie Sanders Campaign to a Progressive Movement by Heather Gautney A leading activist-scholar on what’s next in the Sanders revolution.
 
Bernie Sanders shocked the political establishment by winning 13 million votes and a majority of young voters in the 2016 Democratic primary. Since that upset, repeated polls have judged this democratic socialist to be the most popular politician in the United States. What lessons can be drawn from his surprising insurgent campaign?
 
Longtime author and activist Heather Gautney was a Policy Fellow in Sanders’s Washington, DC, office and a volunteer researcher and organizer on his presidential campaign. In reviewing what enabled Sanders to reach out to an unprecedented number with a socialist message — and what stalled his progress — she draws lessons on the prospects and perils of building a progressive movement in the United States.
 
Gautney’s poignant account of the role that race and class played in this election cycle, her anatomy of the conflicting dynamics of movement and electoral ambitions, and her clear-eyed analysis of the Democratic position following Trump’s victory will serve as a useful starting point for many readers newly aware of the limitations of the Democratic Party and the immensity of the challenges ahead.
