Bernie Sanders' book is part memoir, part campaign diary and part political manifestoby Alex Hacillo / December 14, 2016 / Leave a comment

Could Bernie Sanders have beaten Donald Trump? That question will remain one of the great “what ifs” of American politics. Regardless, as Sanders has said, the fight goes on and Our Revolution is a first step in that direction. Part memoir, part campaign diary and part political manifesto, it was published a week after the presidential election.
It seems that Sanders didn’t anticipate a Trump victory. There is relatively little mention of the President-Elect here and no protracted post-mortem. Instead Sanders turns his sights on corporate greed and the influence of money in politics. Our assumption must be that his book was designed to push President Hillary Clinton further to the left.
