Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This, the second anthology of their writing, collects the Bad Subjects Collective's most interesting and provocative articles from the last six years. Covering diverse personal and political ground, the contributors explore cultural and media studies, racial identities, sexual politics, globalization, alternative communities, activism, the complexities of history, alternative consciousness and many other topics, in an incendiary mix of political radicalism and rigourous debate that's intended to provoke further discussion among academics and activists worldwide. Contributors include Doug Henwood, Richard D. Wolff, Annalee Newitz, Rick Prelinger, David Hawkes, Joel Schalit, Megan Shaw Prelinger, John Brady, Arturo Aldama, Joe Lockard, Jonathan Sterne, Charlie Bertsch, Mike Mosher, Cynthia Hoffman, Kim Nicolini, J.C. Myers, Scott Schaffer, Fred Aldama, Zach Furness, Elisabeth Hurst, Matt Wray, Tomas Sandoval and Viet Thanh Nguyen. 'Bad Subjects is a collective that seeks to revitalize progressive politics in retreat. We think too many people on the left have taken their convictions for granted. So we challenge progressive dogma by encouraging readers to think about the political dimension to all aspects of everyday life.' From the Bad Subjects manifesto
