Learning Activism : The Intellectual Life of Contemporary Social Movements (Paperback) (Aziz Choudry)
about this item
Drawing from the author's own extensive experience as an activist, as well as examples from a variety of movements (global and transnational activism, community organizing, environmental activism, etc.), this book offers an accessible and lively peek into the lives of ordinary citizens-turned-activists. Why do people become activists? What do they learn in the process of becoming an activist? In answering these questions, Choudry carves out a new space for intellectual life in activist practice.
