Summary
A timely, inspiring, and even revolutionary look at who wields the greatest power in America--everyday people who take a chance and stand up for what they believe in--but also offers advice on what you can do to help. The sister-brother team of Amy and David Goodman traveled the country to detail the ways in which grassroots activists have taken politics out of the hands of politicians. As the Bush administration has waged war abroad and at home, it has catalyzed a vast groundswell of political action. This book tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed. From African-American residents of deluged New Orleans who are fighting to regain their homes, to four librarians who refused to spy on their patrons, challenged the PATRIOT Act, and won, citizens are rising to extraordinary challenges--and changing the way that politics is done.--From publisher description
