Unite and Conquer
How to Build Coalitions That Win-- and LasteBook - 2009
Old-school divide-and-conquer tactics--demonizing opponents, frightening voters, refusing to compromise--may make us feel good about the purity of our ideals, but it's no way to get anything done. Worse, this approach betrays some of the most cherished ideals of the progressive movement: inclusion, reason, justice, and hope. Illuminated by examples from her own work and a host of campaigns across the country, Kyrsten Sinema shows how to forge connections--both personal and political--with seemingly unlikely allies and define our values, interests, and objectives in ways that broaden our range of potential partners and expand our tactical options. With irreverent humor, enthralling campaign stories, and solid, practical advice, Sinema enables us to move past "politics as war" and build support for progressive causes on the foundation of our common humanity.
