The virtues of exit : on resistance and quitting politics

Author: Jennet Kirkpatrick
Publisher: Chapel Hill : The University of North Carolina Press, 2018.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Exit is often thought of as purely instinctual, a part of the human 'fight or flight' response, or motivated by an anti-participatory, self-centred impulse. However, in this eye-opening text, Jennet Kirkpatrick argues that the concept of exit deserves closer scrutiny. She not only explores what happens when people make the decision to exit, but also expands our understanding of exit as a political act.

Abstract:

Exit is often thought of as purely instinctual, a part of the human 'fight or flight' response, or motivated by an anti-participatory, self-centred impulse. However, in this eye-opening text, Jennet Kirkpatrick argues that the concept of exit deserves closer scrutiny. She not only explores what happens when people make the decision to exit, but also expands our understanding of exit as a political act.
