Auteur: Fox, Richard G. & Orin Starn
Titel: Between resistance and revolution
Sub titel: Cultural politics and social protest
Peasants in India hugging trees to protest logging, Brazilian feminists marching to impeach a president, Okinawan television comedians joke-starting ethnic activity: all are instances of social protest that exist in the charged territory between the cataclysmic upheaval of revolutionary wars and everyday acts of private resistance. Yet these movements in between resistance and revolution have remained invisible to scholars of politics, culture, and society. In this volume, leading scholars in anthropology, political science, history, sociology, and ethnomusicology examine dissent and direct action in Australia, Brazil, Germany, Columbia, India, Korea, Peru, and the United States and demonstrate the importance of looking beyond these poles of protest to the midways of mobilization. The contributors are Nancy Abelmann, Sonia E. Alvarez, Arturo Escobar, Richard G. Fox, Faye Ginsburg, Ramachandra Guha, Ingrid Monson, Yoshinobu Ota, Orin Starn, and Nathan Stoltzfus.
