It's over! Now what?

The end of the Bush era! Time to look to the future for new ideas. What are some of the things you find inspiring in the struggle for peace and justice? The resources I'll list are very pertinent to the situation in the US *now*, and also kind of nest together nicely - so that's the kind of thing I'm looking for from you.

1. The Progressive Revolution - a book by Mike Lux on the history of the progressive movement -

2. Thinking Big - a book put out by the Progressive Ideas Network* - a summary of the best plans for the future administration -

*Campaign for America's Future, Center for Community Change, Center for Economic and Policy Research, Commonweal Institute, Commonwealth Institute, Center on Wisconsin Strategy, Demos, Drum Major Institute for Public Policy, Economic Policy Institute, Grassroots Policy Project, Green For All, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, Institute for Policy Studies, The Jamestown Project, New Vision: An Institute for Policy and Progress, The Opportunity Agenda, Progressive States Network, Redefining Progress, The Roosevelt Institution, Sightline Institute
