About the Author

Raina Lipsitz lives in Brooklyn and writes about politics and culture. Her work has appeared in Al Jazeera America, the Appeal, Atlantic, Nation, and New Republic, among other publications.


"The Rise of a New Left is an engrossing behind-the-scenes account of our decade's breakout political movement. It is also an invaluable second draft of history that readers and scholars will consult for many years to understand the opportunities and challenges of socialist organizing in the first decades of the 21st century."
-Atossa Araxia Abrahamian, author of The Cosmopolites: The Coming of the Global Citizen

"I was on the verge of getting sad about politics, again. Then I picked up The Rise of a New Left, I was reminded of all the energy on the young left, and I started feeling hope again. If you don't know this movement, you could find no better way to learn about it than this book."
-Doug Henwood, host, Behind the News, KPFA

"An exceptionally well-informed report from the ranks of the most dynamic, constructive movement in contemporary American politics. Few books can be profitably read as history, journalism, and political field manual, but this one succeeds on all three fronts."
-Patricia O'Toole, author of The Moralist: Woodrow Wilson and the World He Made

"An important primer on the young activists and politicians whose mandate is nothing less than saving our country."
-Gary Shteyngart, author of Our Country Friends: A Novel
