”With huge numbers of us recognizing the need for transformative change, this ambitious and exuberant book perfectly matches its historical moment. Ayers fearlessly confronts the intersecting crises of our age—endless war, surging inequality, unchecked white supremacy and perilous planetary warming—while mapping emancipatory new possibilities. From the first page, his courage is contagious.” — Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine For Bill Ayers, it is the freedom of our collective imagination that links the contemporary world— esconced as it is in pervasive militarism, racist violence, and environmental devastation...This is a manifesto that should be read by everyone who wants to believe that ‘another world is possible.’ — Angela Davis

"With huge numbers of us recognizing the need for transformative change, this ambitious and exuberant book perfectly matches its historical moment. Ayers fearlessly confronts the intersecting crises of our age-endless war, surging inequality, unchecked white supremacy and perilous planetary warming-while mapping emancipatory new possibilities.

For Bill Ayers, it is the freedom of our collective imagination that links the contemporary world- esconced as it is in pervasive militarism, racist violence, and environmental devastation...This is a manifesto that should be read by everyone who wants to believe that 'another world is possible.' - Angela Davis

"Demand the Impossible! Provides the imperative we need now. As public consciousness and despair heighten in our various locales, we must be willing to engage lessons from the past and present while building a future that is reflective of our commitment to justice. If we're serious about this, we know there is no choice: All we got is US!"
-David Stovall, author of Born Out of Struggle

Bill Ayers is a social justice activist, teacher, distinguished professor education (retired) at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and author of two memoirs, Fugitive Days and Public Enemy.
He was a former leader of the Weather Underground.
