about

Connecting some of the more remarkable events of the last decade—including the rioting in Oaxaca and in the outskirts of Paris and the modern crises of neoliberalism—this critical analysis suggests new strategies for the progressive Left and that forward-moving change is possible. It examines the concept that movements generally develop at times of acceleration and expansion, but ultimately naturally slow down without consideration of their actual effects—stifling new developments, suppressing the emergence of new forms of politics, or failing to see other possible directions. Global in scope and including writings from Leftist struggles, victories, and defeats, this collection of essays ponders the possibility of a winning movement with lasting change and presents opportunities in all corners of the world.

Turbulence Collective is a publishing project with an aim to carve out space where difficult debates and investigations into current political realities can be carried out. John Holloway is a lawyer, a Marxist-oriented sociologist, and a philosopher whose work is closely associated with the Zapatista movement in Mexico.

Editorial Reviews

"Turbulence's book springs from a particular moment of crisis, critically examining the state of the anti-globalization movement when it seemed to be waning, becoming something else. As such it is far more than a document of the changing ideas, debates and practices of a movement; it offers valuable tools and provocations for the present moment." —Radical Philosophy (September 2011)
