schema:description"Originally published in 2012 to wide acclaim, this updated edition, Why Itʹs Still Kicking Off Everywhere, includes coverage of the most recent events in the wave of revolt and revolution sweeping the planet -- riots in Athens, student occupations in the UK, Quebec and Moscow, the emergence of the Occupy Movement and the tumult of the Arab Spring. Economic crisis, social networking and a new political consciousness have come together to ignite a new generation of radicals. BBC journalist and author Paul Mason combines the anecdotes gleaned through first-hand reportage with political, economic and historical analysis to tell the story of todayʹs networked revolution. Why Itʹs Still Kicking Off Everywhere not only addresses contemporary struggles, it provides insights into the future of global revolt. -- Publisher description."@en
