April 3 marks the publication of Rebuild the Dream by Van Jones, green economy pioneer and former Obama White House official. Jones reflects on his journey from grassroots outsider to White House insider, sharing intimate details of his time in government, and provides a blueprint to reinvent the American Dream.
As the first Obama administration official to write a book about his experiences, Jones offers a unique perspective on why the 2008 "hope" bubble burst, exploring the origin and fate of the movements that helped to elect President Obama, as well as those that have challenged and shaped his presidency. Along the way, Jones reveals surprising parallels between Obama's people-powered campaign, the Tea Party, and Occupy Wall Street.
"A confident clarion call sure to arouse controversy in this election year."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Van has successfully brought together urban youth with clean-tech entrepreneurs, labor leaders with business leaders, civil rights activists with environmentalists."
— Arianna Huffington, on the Huffington Post
