Moser reviews Jackson Rising: The Struggle for Economic Democracy and Black Self-Determination in Jackson, Mississippi.
Jackson Rising is the most important book I have read in a long time... [It] is the rarest of things: a real strategic plan. You will not find a simple wish list that glosses over the hard questions of resources, or some disembodied manifesto imploring the workers forward, but a work-in-progress building the capacity of people to exercise power... By seizing on the crisis and weak links of modern capitalism and building on the historic struggles for racial equality by the black people of Mississippi, Cooperation Jackson has created a model we can all learn from.
