Moments of Excess: Movements, Protest and Everyday Life (Google eBook)
Examining the complicated and sometimes controversial history, goals, and tactics of anticapitalist movements, this compilation focuses on the meaning of the movement as a whole and examines the protests that surrounded global trade and political conferences such as the 1999 World Trade Organization meetings in Seattle and the ongoing G8 summits around the world. The collection offers a broad vision of anticapitalist activism as well as strategies for instigating change, not only for the individual, but also for the collective. Featuring popular culture references, humor, poetry, and essays, this analysis of the counter-summit movement is ideal for those wanting to explore new possibilities for mobilization in the midst of crisis.
