New Internationalist books and publications

Reviews

'Dreaming in Public has accomplished an amazing feat: holding this book in your hands, you can feel the vitality, creativity, candor and collective puzzling and inclusive determination that is making the Occupy movement one of the most influential social movements of our times. This is a book that is both revealing and energizing.'
Joni Seager and Cynthia Enloe

'The history of this movement will be written – and re-written – many times over in the future. For now, thankfully, New Internationalist has archived some of the important primary sources.'
Scott J, The Occupied Oakland Tribune

A stunningly comprehensive compilation of materials, from public statements to engaged reportage, essays focused on analysis and strategy, and documentation of the visual culture of the movement. Neither a narrative of the events nor an observer analysis but an assembly of primary sources - the ‘raw materials’ that developed within the movement.

Created by two New York-based Occupy movement participants, Amy Schrager Lang and Daniel Lang/Levitsky, the book includes contributions from a wealth of protagonists, including Barbara Kingsolver, Naomi Klein, Sara Paretsky, Lemony Snicket, and Staughton Lynd.
