Description

A work of investigative journalism, The Uprising is a firsthand narrative account inside America's new populist movement, from the streets of New York City to the halls of Microsoft to the Mexican border.

Job outsourcing. Perpetual busy signals at government agencies. Slashed paychecks. Stolen elections. A war without end, fatally mismanaged. Ordinary Americans on both the Right and Left have had it with Washington politicians who belong to what David Sirota calls "the Money Party" and are organizing to change the status quo. In his new book, Sirota investigates whether this uprising can be transformed into a unified political movement.

Sirota takes us far from the national media spotlight into the trenches, where real change is happening---from the headquarters of the most powerful third party in America to the bowels of the U.S. Senate; from the auditorium of an ExxonMobil shareholders meeting to the quasi-military staging area of a vigilante force on the Mexican border.

Sirota reminds us that the Declaration of Independence ("America's original uprising manifesto") says that governments "derive their powers from the consent of the governed." Irreverent, insightful, and invigorating, The Uprising is an adventure that shows how the governed have stopped consenting and started taking action.
