Overview

Three decades ago, conservative ideologues at The Heritage Foundation produced a primer on the Reagan Revolution entitled Mandate for Leadership, which offered an overarching philosophy against the role of government and in favor of markets. This volume, produced by the Institute for Policy Studies, which since 1963 has been the nation's leading progressive policy organization, offers a set of specific policy proposals for the incoming national administration on every major domestic and international topic, written specifically for the book by a leading thinker and activist in the field. These chapters set forth a fundamental, badly needed 'mandate for change' to reinvigorate government and rethink the role of markets and civil society. Each one includes an essay supporting the proposed policies and a resource list of relevant organizations, websites, and readings. It is perfect for public policy courses at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Julian Bond
Mandate for Change presents the change we really do need from a who’s who of progressive thinkers who’ve worked for change for years. This is a must read for the new administration and for all who want to help them succeed
Winter 2010 Colloquy
This collection of essays, by a veritable who's who of liberal activists, offers a top-to-bottom agenda for change.
