Van Jones, one of the nation’s leading champions for ecological equality, is switching gears. A cofounder of three non-profits and a former advisor to President Obama, Jones is now working to build a movement grounded in tough-minded American idealism to "take back the American Dream." Rejecting the fashionable mantra of cut-backs and austerity, Jones makes the case for public policies and investments, hoping to create 10 million, well-paying American jobs. Learn more about Jones’ new book Rebuild the Dream and get a glimpse of how his plot for change has thickened since last summer’s interview.
