THE UPRISING An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring Wall Street and Washington

by | Read by Lloyd James

Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

In this polarized land of ours, a not-so-quiet grassroots dissident movement is at work. Its voices are heard amid established U.S. lawmakers, in the nebulous world of the blogosphere, and from shareholders urging responsibility from large corporations. It is nothing short of a progressive revolt, author David Sirota maintains. In his book he seeks people of varying walks of life who are part of this movement and takes the listener inside their worlds—from a border patrol to Lou Dobbs's newsroom. Lloyd James's narration strikes a balanced tone—not smarmy, but not dead-on serious. It's a perfect fit for Sirota's well-written book. Don't expect potshots against the right wing. The author never resorts to a rant, just as James never relies on a cartoonish or arrogant voice. M.B. 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
