Series edited by Nonna Mayer
Protest has become a current mode of political action. Is France, the country with the highest number of demonstrations per year, discovering a new style of citizen politics ? Is this a worldwide tendency? Is a transnational public space in the making ?
Far from a nostalgic evocation of the past, the aim of the PROTEST collection is to answer these questions by analysing the former uses, the current trends, and the actual impact of these political modes of action.
Intended for activists, students, and academics, the PROTEST collection offers a series of short books that are clear, informed and accessible, including for each mode of action:
• A brief history and definition
• A theoretical frame
• A comparative perspective of its uses and political dimensions
• A short bibliography
