Abstract:

Penned by a diverse range of activists, academics, lawyers, artists, and researchers, this book weaves a rich and varied tapestry of strategies for bringing about change in an era of unprecedented economic, social, and ecological crisis. From community-based labor-organizing strategies among immigrant workers to mobilizing psychiatric survivors, from arts and activism for Palestine to organizing in support of indigenous peoples, each essay in this work reflects critically on the tensions, problems, limits, and gains inherent in a range of organizing contexts and practices. The book also places these processes in historical perspective, encouraging us to use history to shed light on contemporary injustices and how they can be overcome.
