Nothing to Lose but Our Fear: Activism and Resistance in Dangerous Times

Author: Fiona Jeffries | Reference: P3124 | ISBN: 978-1783604142

Delivers a counter blow to the rampant culture of fear fuelled by the likes of CNN, Fox and the Daily Mail. Exploring contemporary and historical manifestations of this controlling force, the conversations in this collection go beyond just scrutinizing what constitutes rational versus irrational fear, or identifying ways in which human fears are manipulated by political players. They reveal how fear antagonizes and changes our subjectivity and, crucially, how the political use of fear has been resisted in different times and places, by different people across the globe.
