For­mer White House hope­ful and fierce in­de­pen­dent Sen. Bernard San­ders has a strate­gi­cally timed book wait­ing in the wings. “Our Revo­lu­tion: A Fu­ture to Be­lieve In” will be re­leased ex­actly one week af­ter the pres­i­den­tial election. It is a big work, weigh­ing in at 464 pages, re­count­ing the Vermont law­maker’s ex­pe­ri­ences on the cam­paign trail and the er­ror of pun­dits who dis­missed him. “Most im­por­tant, he showed that the Amer­i­can peo­ple were pre­pared to take on the greed and ir­re­spon­si­bil­ity of cor­po­rate Amer­ica and the 1 per­cent,” pub­lisher Thomas Dunne says in ad­vance notes.

Only a year ago, Mr. San­ders wrote a pre­vi­ous book ti­tled “Out­sider in the White House,” de­scribed as “the po­lit­i­cal biography of the in­sur­gent pres­i­den­tial can­di­date.” But the au­thor ap­pears poised for big­ger des­tiny.

“For the mil­lions look­ing to con­tinue the po­lit­i­cal revo­lu­tion, he out­lines a pro­gres­sive eco­nomic, en­vi­ron­men­tal, ra­cial, and so­cial jus­tice agenda that will cre­ate jobs, raise wages, pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment, and pro­vide health care for all and ul­ti­mately trans­form our coun­try and our world for the bet­ter. For him, the po­lit­i­cal revo­lu­tion has just started. The cam­paign may be over, but the strug­gle goes on,” the pub­lisher ad­vises.
