In his new book, Van Jones, CNN political contributor and host of the recurring primetime special The Messy Truth with Van Jones, offers a passionate manifesto that exposes hypocrisy on both sides of the political divide and points a way out of the tribalism that is tearing America apart. Jones provides a blueprint for transforming our collective anxiety into meaningful change. He urges both sides to abandon the politics of accusation and focus on real solutions. Beyond the Messy Truth includes resources — contacts, books, media, and organizations — for bipartisan bridge-building and problem solving.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee and Yale Law School, Van Jones was a special adviser to the Obama White House. He is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, The Green Collar Economy and Rebuild the Dream. Jones founded the social justice acclerator, the Dream Corps, and has led numerous social and environmental justice enterprises.
