As the rise of Bernie Sanders makes clear, "socialism" is no longer a dirty word. It suggests promise, ideals, and community transformation. Progressives now must come up with practical alternatives to what's in place. We can no longer be complainers without solutions. "Beautiful Solutions" pairs critique with innovative solutions that point the way towards a new system. First launched online in partnership with Naomi Klein and Avi Lewis "This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate," "Beautiful Solutions" uses as examples communities that fight against the root causes of injustice and working to build something better. Rather than prescribing an orthodoxy, the team behind "Beautiful Solutions" spotlights strategies that work, and can be replicated. These approachesdelivered therough the book and via grassroots popular education and trainingcan build democratic leadership in communities, strengthen resistance, transform public policy and help shift the broader culture from extraction and dependence to creativity and interdependence. The people featured in this project work in their communities prove things can be done differently--and that systemic change is within our grasp. Featured stories include: Groundbreaking legal battles for indigenous land title in New Zealand and Renewable, indigenous-owned economic development on Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota; Recuperated workplaces in Argentina and at New Era Windows Cooperative in Chicago; Sukuk(Islamic partial ownership bonds) issued in the Middle East and Southeast Asia; Youthled participatory budgeting in Boston, MA; Social solidarity health clinics in Thessaloniki, Greece, and GreenWave s restorative ocean farming in Long Island Sound."

A guide to political struggle for a generation that is deeply ambivalent about power. While many activists gravitate toward mere self-expression and identity-affirming rituals at the expense of serious political intervention, Smucker provides an apologia for leadership, organization, and collective power, a moral argument for its cultivation, and a discussion of dilemmas that movements must navigate in order to succeed.

Rules For Revolutionaries

Lessons from the groundbreaking grassroots campaign that helped launch a new political revolution Rules for Revolutionaries is a bold challenge to the political establishment and the “rules” that govern campaign strategy. It tells the story of a breakthrough experiment conducted on the fringes of the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign: A technology-driven team empowered volunteers to build and manage the infrastructure to make seventy-five million calls, launch eight million text messages, and hold more than one-hundred thousand public meetings—in an effort to put Bernie Sanders’s insurgent campaign over the top. Bond and Exley, digital iconoclasts who have been reshaping the way politics is practiced in America for two decades, have identified twenty-two rules of “Big Organizing” that can be used to drive social change movements of any kind. And they tell the inside story of one of the most amazing grassroots political campaigns ever run. Fast-paced, provocative, and profound, Rules for Revolutionaries stands as a liberating challenge to the low expectations and small thinking that dominates too many advocacy, non-profit, and campaigning organizations—and points the way forward to a future where political revolution is truly possible.

This is a study of artist/activists and their participation in social movements in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, in Mexico City, Oaxaca, and California. McCaughan places the three movements within their own local histories, cultures, and conditions, but also links them to the 1968 rebellions that were going on across the world.
