Bernie Sanders To Publish “Our Revolution”

On November 15, Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin’s Press, will release a new book by U.S. Senator and former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. The book, sanderstitled Our Revolution: A Future To Believe In (304p. ISBN 9781250132925. $27. ebk. ISBN 9781250132932. CD: Macmillan Audio), offers both an account of Sanders’s campaign for the presidency and an argument for the progressive economic, environmental, racial, and social justice agenda he proposes to create jobs, raise wages, protect the environment, and provide health care for all.

World publishing rights were acquired by Thomas Dunne, who says, “Bernie Sanders quickly became the leader of the progressive movement within the Democratic Party. Garnering over thirteen million votes, winning twenty-three primaries and caucuses, and receiving more than seven million individual donations to his cause, he energized the party as he fought for the average American with unrelenting energy and passion. Our Revolution will be an inside account of this extraordinary campaign, and will also provide a blueprint for future political action. Its message: the fight has just begun. To say we are excited is an understatement. Bernie’s ideas and plan for action may well change the lives of millions of people for the better. It is an honor to be involved with the book.”

In 2003, Sanders was chosen as LJ‘s Politician of the Year. At the time, as Vermont’s at-large representative and the only Independent in the House, he was among 66 representatives and one senator who voted against the Patriot Act and led efforts to amend it.
