Juan Gonzalez, award-winning journalist and co-host of Democracy Now!, will discuss and sign Reclaiming Gotham: Bill de Blasio and the Movement to End America’s Tale of Two Cities ($26.95 New Press). This book explores how Bill de Blasio’s mayoral victory triggered a seismic shift in the nation’s urban political landscape—and what it portends for our cities in the future.

De Blasio’s election heralded the advent of the most progressive New York City government in generations. Gotham, in other words, had been suddenly reclaimed in the name of its people.

How did this happen? De Blasio’s victory, journalist legend Juan Gonzalez argues, was not just a routine change of government but a popular rebellion against corporate-friendly policies that had dominated New York for decades. This new generation of municipal leaders offers valuable lessons for those seeking grassroots reform.
