Reviews
"Mr.Green provides one of the best and most readable overviews of the Democrats' evolution on economic issues over the past half-century. If he doesn't settle the issue of whether we are headed for a 'new era' in American politics, he provides much useful material for thinking about that possibility." --Ruy Teixeira, The Wall Street Journal

"Green's work is smart, sharp and smoothly written . . . The book offers a valuable recapitulation of the crack-up of the New Deal coalition, the impact of Ronald Reagan's victories and the continued reverberations of the Great Recession of 2008." --The Guardian

"A clear and satisfying narrative of the last 15 years of Democratic politics." --The New Republic

"A zippy narrative of noble warriors taking on entrenched powers." --Washington Monthly

"Fast-paced, sober, yet hopeful . . . Green is a first-rate journalist." --George Packer, The Atlantic

"The Rebels furnishes a rich and compelling account of how leading Democrats veered away from the party's prime mandate to advocate for ordinary Americans against moneyed interests." --The Baffler

"A smooth narrative on how the Democrats eager to respond to the massive popularity of Ronald Reagan and collapse of Jimmy Carter economic policies became champions of 'capital formation' lingo and began to smooth the way for the rise of financial interests over worker interests . . . What Green outlines brilliantly is the origin story of Warren and her successors . . . What is certain is that the era of neoliberal economics has been buried in both parties, or at least pushed to deep subterranean levels -- a clear victory for the voices Green explores, Sanders and Warren and AOC." --Semafor

"A revealing history of an epochal shift in American politics." --Publishers Weekly
