My old friend John Judis has a terrific take on, as the puts it, the current "socialist awakening" in his new book just out from Columbia Global Reports. It's hardly an uncritical look and he fairly unpacks both the weaknesses and strengths of this emerging movement. Highly recommended!
And! You can get the book packaged with his two other recent books on populism and nationalism for a low, low price from the capitalist swine at Amazon. Such a deal!
Also! Catch John interviewed by EJ Dionne on his book in an online event sponsored by the Politics & Prose book store this Thursday at 8pm.
