Occupy Wall Street is the most dynamic phenomenon in progressive politics in over forty years. Its followers across the country transformed the national debate, galvanizing millions with its clarion call for economic justice: "We are the 99 percent." Nearly overnight, Occupy whipped up a groundswell of excitement, anger, hope, and resolve. Now, with the 2012 election looming on the horizon, Occupy finds itself at a decisive moment: can it use its momentum to convert its principles into lasting change?
In "Occupy Nation," bestselling social historian Todd Gitlin offers the first narrative survey of the story and spirit of the movement--from its historic inspirations, to its inner tensions, to its prospects in the months and years to come. Despite its widespread appeal and global ramifications, Gitlin argues, Occupy Wall Street has been poorly understood by journalists, pundits, politicians, and everyday Americans alike. In "Occupy Nation," he offers a fresh and fascinating account of this unique and remarkable phenomenon while casting an informed look at its continuing evolution--and how it needs to proceed to truly make an impact. Informed by Gitlin's own history in the 60s protest movement--but written with both eyes aimed at the future--"Occupy Nation" is the key book for anyone looking to understand the revolution playing out before our eyes.
