9781444349986: The Down-Deep Delight of Democracy

Arguing that the hegemony of the neoliberal/capitalist nexus must be challenged if we are to address the proliferating challenges facing our world, this inspiring book explains how democracy can revive the political fortunes of the left.

  • Explores issues central to the civil uprisings that swept the world in 2011, drawing profound connections between democracy and neoliberalism in an urban context
  • Features in-depth analysis of key political theorists such as Gramsci; Lefebvre; Rancière; Deleuze and Guattari; and Hardt and Negri
  • Advocates the reframing of democracy as a personal and collective struggle to discover the best in ourselves and others
  • Includes empirical analysis of recent instances of collective action

From the Back Cover:

This profound analysis explores issues central to the wave of civil uprisings that swept the world in 2011. Extending and deepening the author’s past analysis of the relationship between democracy and neoliberalism in an urban context, this volume explores democracy in greater theoretical depth. It works closely with the thought of key scholars in political theory including Friedrich Nietzsche, Antonio Gramsci, Henri Lefebvre, Jacques Rancière, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, and Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. It discovers in their work a profound desire for democracy, a democracy in which we struggle individually and collectively to actively manage our own affairs. The arguments in this book go right to the heart of the challenge now facing the political left.
