    First half of the book on the changed terrain of class struggle is excellent -- should be read by every leftist labor activist in the US. Second half on the Democrats and socialist electoral strategy is good, but doesn't seem to really fully reckon with the lessons of Bernie's campaign, in my opinion.

    It has been said that Karl Marx wrote Das Kapital to put a weapon in the hands of the working class. This indeed must be equally true for this work by Kim Moody. The most important text of our moment? I'd venture to say it is an essential read. THE most essential read for anyone interested in socialism, activism, social change, the changing nature of work, and development of capital.If I had the money, I'd put this book into the hands of every man, woman, non-binary person, child, and animal on the planet. The research and use of data is phenomenal, casting a clear light into previously murky, gray territory. It illuminates a path forward. "We fight now on new terrain. The trends that created barriers, pitfalls, divisions, and minefields for working-class organization and power, while not disappearing, have been altered through capitalism's own inherent dynamics of competition and expansion, which has lead to the consolidation, integration, and relocation of capital in ways that are potentially MORE ADVANTAGEOUS FOR WORKING-CLASS RESISTANCE, ORGANIZATION, AND POWER [...] The art of working-class advance on this new terrain of class struggle will depend of combining and integrating the unionizing potential of the new configuration of capital with its increased vulnerabilities, on the one hand, and organized, urban-based, mass working-class and social movement activism and grassroots, independent political action, beginning locally and building upward, on the other." Don't moan, read this book. Then organize.
