Editorial Reviews

In this thoughtful collection of conversations Amelia Stein seeks paradoxically to define, without locking down, the narrative of the Occupy movement and widespread revolutionary zeitgeist that sprung up around it through discussion with a selection of contemporary artists, activists, and thinkers. This is a true exercise in dialogue, using the words of these vital minds in concurrence with each other to strive for some larger truth. Amanda Carlin voices these interviews with the sympathetic and serious tone that they require. This is an inspiring collection for any curious mind or student of social and political thought.

Publisher's Summary

"I don't think there'll ever be a day when there's nothing to dissent about." (Lawrence Ferlinghetti)
"The game is being run on people but they don’t know how the game is being run." (Arthur Blaustein)
"I often feel as though right before a movement people think nothing is going to change." (Candace Falk)
Since the eviction of Occupy protestors from encampments in many cities throughout the world, smaller and more targeted occupations have continued. Workers in a Chicago factory occupied - with the support of their union - to protest layoffs. Teachers and students in Tucson staged a walkout to protest the removal of Chicano history books from the curriculum. Home foreclosures were disrupted, even avoided, by direct community action. But what does it all mean? What do we talk about when we talk about "revolution", if we talk about it at all?
Journalist Amelia Stein sat down with some of our most prominent thinkers, artists, and activists and asked them. The resulting conversations were lively, thoughtful, and engaging. This is the perfect handbook for anyone looking to engage more deeply with our own, ongoing, American Spring.
