"Kim Moody's provocative work 'On New Terrain' immediately shakes the reader by offering a hard hitting, concrete and sober analysis of the transformation of both the capitalist and working classes of the USA. His analysis lays the foundation for the development of theory to situate a 21st century working class reawakening. Moody offers the reader a pole of opinion which helps to advance a badly needed debate that has profound implications for the creation of a movement for socialism." -Bill Fletcher, Jr., coauthor of "Solidarity Divided"; author of "'They're Bankrupting Us' - And Twenty Other Myths about Unions"
"Moody's "new terrain" is not a world, as most would have it, where globalization has left U.S. workers helpless. It shows how corporations' inevitable push for profits actually opens up new vulnerabilities—if only unions can get their act together. He explodes myths about the gig economy and the potential to transform the Democratic Party. Readers will put the book down convinced that there is a way for workers to win." -Jane Slaughter, LaborNotes
"Kim Moody, whose books and articles have for more than forty years provided essential analysis and strategy for the labor left, continues this indispensable work in his new book, On New Terrain: How Capital is Reshaping the Battleground of Class War. Arguing that capital has created a new and more advantageous terrain for working class struggle, he suggests that capital is more vulnerable, but the labor and social movements must be able to make the most of the situation. And Moody suggests how they might do so. The working class, he argues, also has the potential to create its own political force, but only if it can avoid the cul-de-sac of the Democratic Party. Every labor activist and all of those who want to build a powerful left in America will want to get this book." – Dan La Botz, New Politics
