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.

A daughter’s memoir of her mother evolves beautifully into a narrative of the far-reaching changes in women’s lives in the twentieth century. With the sweep of an epic novel, Our Revolution follows Jenny Moore, a charismatic and brilliant woman whose life changed as she became engaged in the great twentieth-century movements for peace and social justice. Born into Boston society in 1923 and the first woman in her family to go to college, she set aside writing ambitions to marry Paul Moore, a decorated war hero who became Bishop Paul Moore. Together they had nine children—"I wanted a baseball team," Jenny said, "or a small orchestra." Rejecting a conventional path, the Moores moved to an inner-city parish in Jersey City and began their family while collaborating on a socially radical, multiracial ministry. In 1968, Jenny published her first book. "Everything was just starting," she protested—meaning an independent life inspired in part by the new feminist movement—when she was diagnosed with cancer at fifty. Jenny bequeathed to her eldest daughter, Honor, then a twenty-seven-year-old poet, her unfinished writing. As Honor pursued her own career as a writer, she was haunted by her mother’s bequest. Decades later, she delves into Jenny’s pages and forges a new relationship with the passionate seeker and truth teller she finds there. Our Revolution is a vivid, absorbing account of two women navigating the twentieth century and a daughter’s story of the mother who shaped her life as an artist and a woman.

Our Revolution By Leon Trotsky With apparent faithfulness, translator Moissaye J. Olgin, has reproduced some of the more important revolutionary essays of the Russian leader, dating from the eve of the revolution of 1905 to March, 1917, when Bronstein, or "Trotsky" (the editor explains this to be the same familiar sort of nom de plume as "Gorki" or "Fyodor Sologub"), left the United States to assume the leadership of the Bolsheviki forces. They reveal an Intellect by no means incongruous with the position Trotsky has held in the Russian chaos, one showing, somewhat as might be expected, the iron of bitterness and the fire of ruthless zeal. Not so clearly evident is the clear coolness of broad, rather than far, vision, which, with the other two qualities, is needful to forge true steel. One does not find here the traitor or pawn of Prussianism that he has been claimed to be; but one can understand that the bludgeon mind of angry fanaticism might not question too closely the source of aid received, lacking the fine edge of moral discernment necessary to foresee the inevitable result of victory purchased unscrupulously. These glimpses of the second prominent figure of the Russian revolution are distinctly worth the reader's while. They are scenes from a most human drama-be like a tragedy, when we consider Trotsky's own words: "History is a tremendous mechanism serving our ideals. Its work is slow, barbarously slow, implacably cruel; yet the work goes on. We believe in it. Only at moments, when this voracious monster drinks the living blood of our hearts to serve it as food, we wish to shout with all our might: We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection.
