Summary Bernie Sanders's campaign for the presidency of the United States has galvanized people all over the country, putting economic, racial, and social justice into the spotlight, and raising hopes that Americans can take back their country from the billionaires and change the course of history. In this book, Sanders tells the story of his political life. He describes how, after cutting his teeth in the Civil Rights movement, he helped build a grassroots political movement in Vermont, making it possible for him to become the first independent elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in forty years. The story continues through the U.S. Senate and through the launch of his presidential campaign.
