Dreaming in public : building the occupy movement

Amy Schrager Lang (Editor), Daniel Lang/Levitsky (Editor)
"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."--Publisher
