Sarah Jaffe leads readers into the heart of these movements, explaining what has made ordinary Americans become activists. Jaffe argues that the financial crisis in 2008 was the spark, the moment that crystallized that something was wrong. For years, Jaffe crisscrossed the country, asking people what they were angry about, and what they were doing to take power back. Americans are discovering the effectiveness of making good, necessary trouble. Regardless of political alignment, they are challenging who wields power in this country."@en ;
