Bernie Sanders is deeply passionate about advancing a progressive political agenda in the United States. In his latest book, which functions as a platform for his 2020 presidential campaign, Sanders reflects on his role in politics from summer 2016 to summer 2018. He highlights accomplishments and discusses the issues that resonate most intensely for him. In fierce, yet hope-filled prose, Sanders calls for grassroots participation in politics and for individuals to stand up and fight against inequality in American society.
The topics covered in this slim text will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Sanders’ politics. Sanders pulls heavily from various speeches he made between 2016 and 2018 to flesh out the key bullet-points of his progressive agenda. As a result, those who come to the book looking for new information on these goals, or greater detail about how Sanders might, as President, make them a reality may find themselves disappointed. Still, those wishing for a better understanding of Sanders’ day-in-the-life work as a US Senator will likely enjoy this read, as will voters wanting a solid overview of Sanders’s political priorities.
