The New Wave Of Candidates Knocking At Democracy’s Door

Book Cover "People Like Us"

America’s political leadership remains overwhelmingly white, male, moneyed, and Christian. Even at the local and state levels, elected office is inaccessible to the people it aims to represent.

But in "People Like Us: The New Wave of Candidates Knocking at Democracy’s Door," political scientist Sayu Bhojwani shares the stories of a diverse and persevering range of local and state politicians from across the country who are challenging the status quo, winning against all odds, and leaving a path for others to follow in their wake.
