A Bibliography, from Sarah

Hi Scoochers!

If you’re listening to the Radio Dispatch Live with Sarah Jaffe and would like to access all of the books and articles she references, you’re in luck. She sent over an incomplete bibliography:


Populist Persuasion– “A penetrating account of populism in American politics, from the era of Thomas Jefferson to the era of William Jefferson Clinton.”

Hammer and Hoe: Alabama Communists During the Great Depression

What a Band of 20th-Century Alabama Communists Can Teach Black Lives Matter and the Offspring of Occupy

The Road to Wigan Pier– “A searing account of George Orwell’s experiences of working-class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire, The Road to Wigan Pier is a brilliant and bitter polemic that has lost none of its political impact over time. His graphically unforgettable descriptions of social injustice, slum housing, mining conditions, squalor, hunger and growing unemployment are written with unblinking honesty, fury and great humanity.”

There Goes the Neighborhood– “There Goes the Neighborhood, a podcast by The Nation and WNYC Studios and hosted by Kai Wright, takes an in-depth look at gentrification in Brooklyn and the integral role that race plays in the process.”

Happy reading and listening, and be sure to buy Sarah’s book which comes out August 23rd!
