At a time full of pessimism, Mike McCabe wrote an unapologetically optimistic book, Blue Jeans in High Places: The Coming Makeover of American Politics. The book predicts we are on the verge of extensive renovation of the political landscape. It describes when it has happened before and spells out how and where it will happen next, and who will do the renovating.
Mike didn’t write Blue Jeans in High Places as an academic exercise. He is no academic. He wrote it as a blueprint, and blueprints are worthless unless they are used to build something. Blue Jean Nation is that something.
“There is no shortage of writing about what has gone haywire in our democracy. Mike’s book not only describes in vivid detail how things got so fouled up, it offers a way out. It supplies much-needed hope, but even more importantly, it provides a blueprint for building a movement to restore citizens’ power.”
