Blue Grit is pure political tonic, a stirring call-to-arms for progressives who feel they've been left out in the cold by their alleged allies. Laura Flanders offers a galvanizing vision of political democracy as it was meant to thrive: in the lives and stories of ordinary Americans. -- Michael Eric Dyson, author of Debating Race
In Blue Grit, Laura Flanders throws a verbal hand grenade into the Democratic 2006 election celebration. She makes it clear that Liberals are as unhappy with the Democratic Party as Conservatives are with the GOP. It seems to me that something important, maybe even historic is stirring in the political arena-stay tuned. -- Richard A. Viguerie
Laura Flanders is a star burst of optimism -- people need that -- and Blue Grit is the perfect vehicle for spreading her message. Politics can be fun again AND progressive goals can succeed. There is a new crowd moving in on tired old politicians and they are stirring up a hopeful new politics. -- William Greider
Laura Flanders' Blue Grit gives hope even to those of us who don't ordinarily go in for that sort of thing. -- Fran Lebowitz
With her usual daring, flair and down home investigative style, Laura Flanders travels America and finds the progressive grassroots movement alive and kicking. Her book, Blue Grit, asks who owns the Democratic Party, "the people in the suites or the people in the streets." It is a crucial question, and this book is crucial reading." -- Eve Ensler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
