Praise

Occupy! abounds with insights on how the occupiers have dealt with internal challenges to their experiment in direct democracy.”—Andrew Ross, Guardian

“Both analytical and full of vivid experience … These blog-style pieces are interspersed with more substantive writings, which are the true strength of the collection … but most interesting are those by lesser-known writers who bring us vivid historical analyses of various aspects of the occupations.”—Michael Sayeau, Observer

“Unlike most quickie publications, the book is gorgeous, a testament to beautiful book design … the essays are thoughtful pieces of first-person reportage. [A] clear-eyed and sober examination of the dream world that we created this fall, along with a few brief, tentative explorations of what it will become in the future. It’s also an excellent proof-of-concept for speedily published book-length journalism that does work blogs and newspapers simply can’t do. This is not some dashed-off smear of a money-making scheme; I recommend it heartily.”—Paul Constant, The Stranger

“A heart warming anthology of the voices involved in this surprising grass roots movement.”—Robert Birnbaum, Our Man in Boston

Occupy!, an anthology from the occasional Occupy Gazette published by n+1, includes … a lovely piece on the difficulties of organising an occupation’s laundry, which works as a handy metaphor for some of the movement’s larger challenges.”—The Economist
