about

A crisis makes you rethink your life. The recent economic crisis is no exception. All of us are now thinking how the world could be run differently. Despite this, a radical alternative has hardly emerged to mobilize the masses. Written for the public and students, this book explores the character and spirit of radical politics in our times.
JONATHAN PUGH is Senior Academic Fellow in Territorial Governance at Newcastle University, UK. He is Director of 'The Spaces of Democracy and the Democracy of Space' network. This examines the character and spirit of radical politics today, operating through 15 institutions globally.
