Irresistible Revolution: Confronting Race, Class and the Assumptions of LGBT Politics by Urvashi Vaid is a strategic and informed argument about the pitfalls of limited political vision, and the benefits of an agenda that encompasses, yet moves beyond, equality.

This optimistic book challenges advocates for LGBT rights in the U.S. to aspire beyond the narrow framework of equality, and outlines a more substantive politics with race, class, and gender at its foundation. Urvashi Vaid suggests that such a politics will produce greater and more meaningful change for a larger number of people.

Irresistible Revolution is intended for a broad and general audience, and turns an experienced and thoughtful lens onto many common controversies facing contemporary social change movements: 

Pursuit of broad or narrow agendas

Integration of economic and racial justice

Integrating sexual orientation and gender identity in human rights frameworks

The persistence of sexism

The dilemmas of bipartisanship

The challenge of seeing beyond the short term to secure gains made for the long term
