Publication Day: America's Cultural Revolution

Culture Critical Race Theory

My book on America’s cultural revolution is the #1 best seller on Amazon.

Today is the big day. My new book, America’s Cultural Revolution, has gone into publication and is currently the #1 best seller on all of Amazon.

The ambition of this book is to set the frame for the national debate and reshape the political discourse on America’s culture war. If you have enjoyed my investigative reporting on critical race theory and institutional capture, you will love America’s Cultural Revolution, which explores these themes in much greater depth. Buy it now on Amazon or wherever books are sold.

Here’s the synopsis from the book jacket:

For decades, left-wing radicals patiently built a revolution in the shadows. Then suddenly, after the death of George Floyd, their ideas exploded into American life. Corporations denounced the United States as a “system of white supremacy.” Universities pushed racially segregated programs that forced students to address their racial and sexual “privilege.” And schools injected critical race theory into the classroom, dividing children into “oppressor” and “oppressed.”

In this stunning new book, Christopher F. Rufo exposes the inner history of the left-wing intellectuals and militants who slowly and methodically captured America’s institutions, with the goal of subverting them from within. With profiles of Herbert Marcuse, Angela Davis, Paulo Freire, and Derrick Bell, Rufo shows how activists have profoundly influenced American culture with an insidious mix of Marxism and racialist ideology. They’ve replaced “equality” with “equity,” subverted individual rights in favor of group identity, and convinced millions of Americans that racism is endemic in all of society. Their ultimate goal? To replace the constitution with a race-based redistribution regime, administered by “diversity and inclusion” commissars within the bureaucracy.

America’s Cultural Revolution is the definitive account of the radical Left’s long march through the institutions. Through deep historical research, Rufo shows how the ideas first formulated in the pamphlets of the Weather Underground, Black Panther Party, and Black Liberation Army have been sanitized and adopted as the official ideology of America’s prestige institutions, from the Ivy League universities to the boardrooms of Wal-Mart, Disney, and Bank of America. But his book is not just an exposé. It is a meticulously-researched and passionate refutation of the arguments of CRT—and a roadmap for the counter-revolution to come.
