Janet Byrne (ed.): The Occupy Handbook (2012)

20 May 2012, dusan

“The Occupy Handbook pairs the most widely read and closely followed of the world’s economic, business, and cultural writers with the most popular protest movement in American history since the sea change of the 1960s: Occupy Wall Street.

Sixty-seven writers analyze the movement’s deep-seated origins in questions that the country has sought too long to ignore. The writers include Paul Krugman, Robin Wells, Michael Lewis, Paul Volcker, John Cassidy, Emmanuel Saez, Peter Diamond, Robert Reich, Daron Acemoglu, James A. Robinson, Amy Goodman, Jeff Madrick, Pankaj Mishra, Barbara Ehrenreich, Scott Turow, Carmen M. Reinhart, Kenneth S. Rogoff, Bethany McLean, Brandon Adams, Robert Shiller, Raghuram Rajan, Gillian Tett, Martin Wolf, Arjun Appadurai, Tyler Cowen, Felix Salmon, David Cay Johnston, Chris Hedges, David Graeber, and many others.

The Occupy Handbook captures the Occupy Wall Street phenomenon in all its ragged glory, giving readers an on-the-scene feel for the movement as it unfolds while exploring the heady growth of the protests, considering the lasting changes wrought, and recommending reform. A handbook to the occupation, The Occupy Handbook is a talked-about source for understanding why 1% of the people in America take almost a quarter of the nation’s income.”
