Book review: how Occupy activists fell in love with their own radical horizontalism and fetishized physical occupation.
LSE Review of Books
(28 Jul 2012)
In the fall of 2011, a small protest camp in downtown Manhattan exploded into a global uprising, sparked in part by what many saw as the violent overreactions of the police. Occupy! is an unofficial record of the movement and combines first-hand accounts with reflections from activist academics and writers. Jason Hickel finds the book has excellent moments of insight but thought it could benefit from a more lengthy analysis.
Occupy! Scenes from Occupied America. Astra Taylor and Keith Gessen (eds). Verso. 2011.
