Description

"The first essential text of a new and remarkably dynamic era of social activism that has already brought profound change to the world." —Bob Herbert Something was in the air in 2011, as protest movements swept through the world—from the Arab Spring, to Spain's Indignados, to the Occupy Wall Street movement that spread from Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan across the United States in the wake of the global financial collapse. This volume collects firsthand accounts and essays about this extraordinary period—providing not only an overview of recent historical events and personal insights about what motivates people to take a stand, but also food for thought on how these events marked a turning point that shaped our current world.
