Can you imagine that kind of language being used by Republicans a year ago?

In this book, you'll find the results of three months of near obsessive reporting, the best of dozens of reported pieces and hundreds of live blog post on what might be the news story of the year. We start with HuffPost reporter Matt Sledge, chronicling the history of the protests, then step back to look at the larger issues -- such as the financial and foreclosure crises -- which set the stage for OWS, with great pieces by Arthur Delaney, among others. The book's second section focuses on the people and places of OWS. Saki Knafo's series, "Occupy Wall Street: The Faces of Zuccotti Park," tells the stories of the individuals behind the movement -- from hitchhikers to professors -- while Jason Cherkis tracks the protests geographically, looking at the dozens of Occupy sites that popped up across the country. And we conclude by trying to place the movement in a larger context -- how it's been portrayed, the political effects it's had, and, most importantly, where it's going. Because, in the end, it's clear: we're in a real crisis, with lots of work to do, but there is also plenty to be hopeful about.

This book is about the beginning. When future histories of Occupy are written, this will be just the first chapter.

As George Bernard Shaw put it: "All progress depends on the unreasonable man." The Occupy movement has shown what can happen when people use some unreasonable methods to achieve eminently reasonable goals.

You can get OCCUPY , which was created and distributed using BookBrewer, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobo.
