Upending American Politics offers a fresh perspective on recent, radical turns in American politics, from the Tea Parties starting in 2009 and anti-Trump resistance groups starting in late 2016. The volume provides insightful answers to key questions: Why has partisan polarization unfolded in a heavily rightward-tilted manner that sees Republicans embracing ever-more extreme positions? Why have widespread grassroots citizens movements erupted twice just
eight years, and what impact have these movements had on the major political parties?

Seth Masket, Director, Center on American Politics, University of Denver Contributors nicely and incisively dissect recent national and state-level partisan shifts and examine the role citizen activism played. This book is strongly encouraged for those seeking to understand how American politics is shifting, and why political lessons taken as a given a decade ago might no longer apply.

Thomas E. Mann, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution Skocpol and her talented team of collaborators have produced a treasure trove of rich empirical studies of the organizational and grassroots political developments that have helped transform contemporary American politics.Together, they shed light upon the stunning reversals of political fortune from Obama to Trump. Both an impressive scholarly achievement and a sobering and enlightening stage-setter for the high-stakes 2020 elections.

EJ Dionne, author of Code Red Some of the best work anyone has done on why Trump prevailed in 2016 and what has happened since, the essays are must-reads for anyone who cares about the future of US politics and anyone interested in what is happening at the grassroots.
