Branko Marcetic

Branko Marcetic’s new book exposes the forgotten history of Joe Biden, one of the United States’ longest-serving politicians, and one of its least scrutinized. Over nearly fifty years in politics, the man called “Middle-Class Joe” served as a key architect of the Democratic Party’s rightward turn, ushering in the end of the liberal New Deal order and assisting the political takeover of the radical right.

Branko Marcetic is a staff writer for Jacobin magazine and a 2019–2020 Leonard C. Goodman Institute for Investigative Reporting Fellow at In These Times.
