Good news: Herding Donkeys is out in paperback today! Picador did an amazing job with the design. There’s also an new afterword focusing on the 2012 elections and future of the Obama movement.
Here’s the new jacket text:
In 2008, Barack Obama’s groundbreaking presidential campaign seemingly rewrote all the rules in electoral politics and heralded a new progressive era in America. What has become of the thrilling grassroots political movement that defined Obama’s campaign and reshaped the electoral map? Ari Berman’s Herding Donkeys answers and illuminates this vital question, mapping the evolution of modern American politics from Howard Dean to the Tea Party, and painting a vivid picture of the fight for political power in America today.
