"The Uprising" Rising Up

by

Friends and fans of former Bernie Sanders aid David Sirota will be happy to hear his new book, The Uprising, cracks The New York Times nonfiction bestseller list today.

In just its first full week of release, the book —  which traces the historical roots of populism, from its start in the rural West and Midwest to the “fist-pounding, primal-screaming revolt” taking shape today —  will be listed at #20 on the Time's list of top sellers.

Seven Days did a Q&A with Sirota, who started his national book tour (with Bernie in tow), a couple weeks ago in Burlington.
