An investigation of how social movements and activists can undermine structures of political power by redefining participation.
 
The past decade has witnessed the resurgence of autonomy-inspired movements in many countries across Europe, North America, and Latin America. From the Indignados to the Occupy Movement and Antifa, from Indigenous mobilizations at Standing Rock to Black Lives Matter, and from radical feminists to climate justice activists, the influence of the ideals and practices of autonomy seems more alive and pervasive than ever. Subverting Politics explores how autonomous social movements navigate the state despite overwhelming tides of corporate and political dominance. Featuring essays from various scholars and academics such as Jason Del Gandio, AK Thompson, Miguel A. Martínez, Émeline Fourment, Rachel Sarrasin, and others, this investigation into the rise and resurgence of social movements is extremely timely for readers seeking new political inspirations.
