Compelling and hopeful, FIGHT combines first-hand interviews with Gen Z members, drawing on their stories and experiences, with fresh data and insight. The book looks at how a generation that’s been faced with an onslaught of unprecedented events – September 11, the war on terror, Hurricane Katrina, the 2008 financial crisis, the housing crisis, the opioid epidemic, mass school shootings, climate change, racial injustice, the whiplash between the election of the first Black president and Donald Trump, and COVID-19 to name a few– has become more politically engaged aiming to disrupt the status quo.

“Perceptive and informative… This is the rare sociological study that manages to inspire.”  ―Publishers Weekly



“A provocative pleasure for demography geeks and political trend-watchers.” ―Kirkus Reviews


“Scrupulously documented.”  ―Booklist



“A compelling, comprehensive, and intensely readable roadmap for why Gen Z is so angry at the political reality they’ve inherited—and why they’re stepping up to stop their parents and grandparents’ generations from destroying their future…urgent, essential reading. It’ll put you in a fighting mood—and give you hope for a better tomorrow.”

—Charlotte Alter, Senior Correspondent, TIME, and author of The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For
