"With great clarity and thoughtfulness, Ian Haney Lopez shows why the path to a truly just society lies in a multi-racial coalition of poor, working and middle-class Americans...Powerful, urgent, and timely."
-Robert B. Reich
"In Dog Whistle Politics" Lopez explained how coded racism in politics tears us apart. He shows us how we can come together again in his new book, Merge Left."
Ian Haney Lopez teaches in the areas of race and constitutional law. One of the nation's leading thinkers on how racism has evolved since the civil rights era, his current research emphasizes the connection between racial divisions in society and growing wealth inequality in the United States. In Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class (2014), Haney Lopez detailed the fifty-year history of how politicians exploit racial pandering to fracture social solidarity and ultimately to convince many voters to support rule by the rich. His most recent book, Merge Left: Fusing Race and Class, Winning Elections, and Saving America (2019), explains how the political manipulation of coded racism has evolved in the Trump era, while also offering an evidence-based approach to neutralizing political racism and building cross-racial solidarity.
Saru Jayaraman is the President of One Fair Wage, Co-Founder of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC United), and Director of the Food Labor Research Center at University of California, Berkeley.
$12 advance, $15 door.
