'Why Bernie Sanders Matters' By Harry Jaffe

Book Cover - Why Bernie Sanders Matters

  As voting begins in a few days in the 2016 Presidential Campaign, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may be the least political person in politics. But, he is leading Hillary Clinton in many polls. He’s closed the fundraising gap, and is drawing crowds of thousands to campaign rallies. Why?

With reporting from inside the campaign, personal relationships with Sanders’s friends and colleagues, and meticulous research, reporter Harry Jaffe offers a portrait of the ultimate outsider candidate, charting Sanders’s course from Brooklyn to Burlington, and now to Des Moines and beyond.

Harry Jaffe is a journalist covering Washington, DC—its politics, its crime, its heroes and villains. His new book is Why Bernie Sanders Matters.
