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.

About the Author:

Daniel Drache is Director of the Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies and Professor of Political Science at York University, Toronto.

Review:

“Drache is well read and committed to his subject, and thebook is littered with excellent quotations from leadingcontemporary thinkers and activists.”
Times Higher Education

“On reading this book, the activist will understand how toarouse wider political participation, and the skeptic will beconcerned that established power uses the same technology tomanipulate a passive public. For a broad and non-specializedaudience, the book opens a discussion about the nature of politicsin the twenty-first century.”
Robert Cox, York University

“Drache makes a courageous and controversial stand againstmuch that is taken for granted by elites in our global order. He isoptimistic that fluid but ‘Defiant Publics’ are movingtowards an unknown but different world, seeking citizenship in adiverse and renewed global public domain. Yet his analysis leavesus aware we should also keep an eye on the possible unintendedconsequences of what might now be occurring.”
Geoffrey Underhill, Universiteit van Amsterdam

“Widespread military adventurism, resurgent violentpopulisms, faux democracies drenched in cynicism, and loomingecological crises on an unimaginable scale: the world we inhabitseems to be one absent of hope or possibility. DanielDrache’s fascinating Defiant Publics jolts us out of ourtoo-easy dystopian imaginings by showing us the ways in whichmultiple publics are struggling to create dynamic newfutures.”
Imre Szeman, McMaster University

“Daniel Drache’s new book builds on the best ofdemocratic theory developed in the twentieth-century nation-state,to conceptualize a non-territorial, non-traditional account ofglobal democratic politics for our time. Defiant Publics identifiesthe new social actors in a de-hierarchized polity and challengesour ways of understanding political deliberation.”
Peer Zumbansen, York University
