    The first half on workplace union struggles is good I didn t really care for the second half on electoral politics , which unleashed a deluge of facts figures in order to make the argument that engaging with the Democratic Party is a waste of time for left activists which feels a bit dated...

    First half of the book on the changed terrain of class struggle is excellent should be read by every leftist labor activist in the US Second half on the Democrats and socialist electoral strategy is good, but doesn t seem to really fully reckon with the lessons of Bernie s campaign, in my opinion.

    It has been said that Karl Marx wrote Das Kapital to put a weapon in the hands of the working class This indeed must be equally true for this work by Kim Moody The most important text of our moment I d venture to say it is an essential read THE most essential read for anyone interested in socialism, activism, social change, the changing nature of work, and development of capital.If I had the money, I d put this book into the hands of every man, woman, non binary person, child, and animal on the planet The research and use of data is phenomenal, casting a clear light into previously murky, gray territory It illuminates a path forward We fight now on new terrain The trends that created barriers, pitfalls, divisions, and minefields for working class organization and power, while not disappearing, have been altered through capitalism s own inherent dynamics of competition and expansion, which has lead to the consolidation, integration, and relocation of capital in ways that are potentially MORE ADVANTAGEOUS FOR WORKING CLASS RESISTANCE, ORGANIZATI...

    I don t know if Moody says too much that feels new here On New Terrain provides a lot in terms of clarity about the changing nature and composition of the working class, the increasing compression of labor, and where labor and capital has become centralized The clarity is welcome, though, because I think he takes traditional discourse about labor and capital and gives it a...

    Bit of a dense read, but well worth it Good protective on how to approach a progressive movement in the US considering current conditions The wealth of references in the back is well chosen.
