Direct Action: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism


Manufacturer: Verso Books

Product Information

"What happened to the American left after the sixties? This engrossing account traces the evolution of disruptive protest over the last forty years to tell a larger story about the reshaping of American radicalism. Direct Action examines how movements from ACT UP to Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter have catalysed change against long odds, winning victories in times of crisis and backlash while creating a distinctive new kind of radical politics in the process. L.A. Kauffman distills decades of in-depth interviews, archival research, and firsthand experience into a powerful tale that will transform your understanding of protest and resistance in America."

L.A. Kauffman. Verso, 2017.
