Social activism and dissent have become global phenomena for ourtimes. Ordinary people across the world are fighting back. Thisnewly potent political force has defeated governments in India andSpain, and has brought down the EU draft constitution. Disaffectedby the triumph of markets, public goods, public interest and publicspaces are regaining political ground.

Daniel Drache argues that, feeding off distrust and suspicion ofgovernments, and assisted by the new cultural flows of people,ideas and information, this is a political phenomenon withouthistorical precedent. No-one owns the new public, elites remainbaffled by its power and impact. No-one can contain its innovative,inclusive and rapidly evolving organizational style. No-one candetermine when the current cycle of dissent will peak.

This lively and engaging book is a must-read for anyone interestedin the role of protesters and publics in contemporary politics.
