Mann has a distinct talent for drawing political lessons from historical events. Every movement needs a map. Katrina’s Legacy takes us to the ravaged Gulf Coast and helps us find a road towards a Third Reconstruction. America needs this movement and Eric helps us find our way.

Glen Ford

editor, Black Agenda Report
Eric Mann places the Gulf Catastrophe in the historical context of racist, capitalist rule in the US at a critical time when the cracks in the ruling class are visible for all to see. Mann provides political leadership, the outlines of a plan for action, and calls us to our battle stations.
