Reimagining Resistance and the Green Scare
A captivating and creative glimpse into the world of direct action, animal and earth liberation, and political repression.
A captivating glimpse into the world of direct action, animal and earth liberation, and political repression. Tracing the strategies of liberationist activists as they grapple with doing activism under repression, Ecoliberation challenges ubiquitous frameworks that label protestors as either good or bad. In stories that are simultaneously heartbreaking, riddled with tension, and inspiring, the author proves that whether or not the revolution is televised, it will be spectacular.
" ... based on the author’s own activist experience as well as interviews and fieldnotes, this study is both a call to action for activist academics and a case study for understanding rhetoric and voice. Written from an anthropological and ethnographic standpoint, this book will interest social and political scientists examining activism, the current environmental crises, or power more generally."

“Ecoliberation makes an important contribution to the literature in a number of ways. First and foremost, studies of social movements routinely ignore anarchism, and Jennifer Grubbs describes tendencies within the anarchist movement and radical milieus in detail. A compelling work.” Deric Shannon, Emory University and editor of The End of the World as We Know It? Crisis, Resistance, and the Age of Austerity
