Abstract:

"In [this book] ... scholars from the fields of political science, law, and philosophy provide a fresh, interdisciplinary perspective on the potential (and limits) of mass protest and disobedience in today's age. Featuring ten timely essays, the contributors address a number of contemporary movements, from Black Lives Matter and the Women's March, to Occupy Wall Street and Standing Rock. Ultimately, this volume challenges us to re-imagine the boundaries between civil and uncivil disagreement, political reform and radical transformation, and democratic ends and means"--Publisher's website.
