Product Details


“Whether she’s in Beswick or Brazil, Hilary Wainwright has gone in search of the questions to the key issues of our time—how can we gain access to the levers of power, democratise them and then use them to effect progressive change? She returns with answers free of dogma and full of in sight, rooted in the experiences of those who know best—people shaping the future of their communities on the ground. Intelligent, well-written and painstakingly researched it is a crucial contribution to the Left agenda.”—Gary Younge, Guardian

“Examining recent events from England to Brazil, and Norway to China, Hilary Wainwright not only charts struggles for social gain but highlights the relations of knowledge and power that they unearth and produce … To make an ‘alternative world not only possible but real’ requires examining our experiences, learning from them, and then charting new paths forward. Wainwright is courageously and energetically at work on the task.”—Michael Albert, Z Magazine

“An extremely valuable contribution to the debate about concrete alternatives to neo-liberalism.”—Naomi Klein

“Hilary Wainwright draws on successful innovations in popular participation from around the world to make a convincing case for the viability of a genuine third way between the dead ends of neo-liberalism and social democracy. This book is likely to become the intellectual flagship of the new politics movement.”—Walden Bello
