Shutting Down the Streets

Author(s): Amory Starr, Luis A. Fernandez, Christian Scholl

New York University Press, New York, 2011, pp. 224

The authors, who took part in protests at summits, from the 1999 WTO demonstrations in Seattle to the 2007 G.8. protests in Heiligendamm (Germany), analyze direct action at 20 summits and how government social control (including a Berlin-type wall at Heiligendamm) limits space for dissent.
