"The conscience of the nation."--"The Guardian"
Since its appearance in Zuccotti Park in September 2011, the Occupy movement has spread to hundreds of towns, cities, and college campuses across the United States. To date, more than 6,500 people have been arrested in 111 US cities, a number that grows daily. By early 2012 it was cliche to say the movement had shifted the national conversation--it has. No longer occupying small tent camps, the movement now occupies the national conscience as its messages spread organically from street protests to op-ed pages to the White House itself. From the movement's onset, Noam Chomsky has supported its critique of corporate corruption and encouraged its efforts to increase civic participation, economic equality, democracy, and freedom for the 99%.
Through talks and conversations with movement supporters, "Occupy" presents a crystallization of Chomsky's latest thinking on the cornerstones issues, questions, and demands that are driving ordinary Americans to protest. How did we get to this point? How are the wealthiest 1% influencing the nation? How are the financial crisis and our political system linked? How has corporate personhood impacted the country and why should it be stopped? How can we get money out of politics? What would a genuinely democratic election look like? How can we redefine basic concepts like "growth" to increase equality and quality of life for all?
Born of the moment, red hot, accessible, affordable, and designed to fit in your back pocket, "Occupy" is positioned to reach a wide national readership.
