TIME, "Best New Books of July"
"In her classic truth-telling, no-holds-barred style, Zerlina flips the 'identity politics' debate on its head, laying out why Democrats should reject the notion that it's a politics of social division, and instead embrace it as a bridge to social cohesion and inclusion. The book underscores a powerful truth: centering the voices and experiences of those too long marginalized in our politics--including women of color and particularly black women--will not only strengthen our democracy, it will win elections."—Maya L. Harris, civil rights advocate, former senior policy advisor to Hillary Clinton, and author of Women of Color: A Growing Force in the American Electorate
"With a style that is as infectious as it is cogent and accessible, the author outlines and defends her recommendations and strategies so thoroughly that the only possible dissent is a willful disregard for the future of not just the Democratic Party, but the future of all but the most privileged Americans."—Kirkus, Starred Review
"Maxwell has produced a worthwhile blueprint for a party that seems to have lost its way."—Booklist
"[This book shows exactly how] uniting under a common vision... will benefit us all."—New Books Network
