							In this time of uncertainty about the future of democracy in America, legendary Diet for a Small Planet author Frances Moore Lappe and organizer-scholar Adam Eichen expose the well-orchestrated effort that has robbed Americans of their rightful power. But at the heart of this unique book are solutions. Even in this divisive time, Americans are uniting across causes and ideologies to create a "canopy of hope" the authors call the Democracy Movement. In this invigorating "movement of movements," millions of Americans are leaving despair behind as they push for and achieve historic change. The movement and democracy itself are vital to us as citizens and fulfill human needs-for power, meaning, and connection-essential to our thriving. In this timely and necessary book, Lappe and Eichen offer proof that courage is contagious in the daring fight for democracy.

"Countering what they call a well-entrenched 'Anti-Democracy Movement,' the authors offer numerous solutions for its antithesis, a democracy-proud confluence of grassroots efforts. With specific plans of action and encouraging words of support, Lappe and Eichen extend concrete hope to those who feel politically helpless." - Booklist
