This Changes Everything: Occupy Wall Street and the 99% Movement


Best ads 0

We Are the 99%

The Occupy Wall Street movement named the core issue of our time: the overwhelming power of Wall Street and large corporations— something the political establishment and most media have long ignored.

But the movement goes far beyond this critique. This Changes Everything shows how the movement is shifting the way people view themselves and the world, the kind of society they believe is possible, and their own involvement in creating a society that works for the 99% rather than just the 1%.

Attempts to pigeonhole this decentralized, fast-evolving movement have led to confusion and misperception. In this volume, the editors of YES! Magazine bring together voices from inside and outside the protests to convey the issues, possibilities, and personalities associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

This book features contributions from Naomi Klein, David Korten, Rebecca Solnit, Ralph Nader, and others, as well as Occupy activists who were there from the beginning, such as David Graeber, Marina Sitrin and Hena Ashraf. It offers insights for those actively protesting or expressing support for the movement—and for the millions more who sympathize with the goal of a more equitable and democratic future.

Occupy Wall Street (OWS)


Best Review 8026

I think this book is already an extremely useful book, and it will be (if the author is successful in updating it as he hopes) even more so, for those who expect that they will be talking with folks from time to time about OWS and its goals, and would like to be able to have a well informed, intelligent, and well documented view of what OWS is and how it's going down. I was very impressed by the author's intent and ability to present the movement like a good reporter, as it really is, warts and all, and not one sided, while at the same time presenting the goals of the movement, and making a good case for the importance of the goals of the movement. The book costs about about as much as one and a half issues of the NYTimes, and in my opinion, it's ongoing value will vastly exceed that of a couple of issues of the NYTimes (although I very much also like the NYTimes also).

In some ways, it could be thought of as a reference book, but it also very readable, and I'm very glad that I purchased a copy.

I believe that the author has done us all a substantial service, in making this material available in such well organized and documented form, on such a timely basis.

40 DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD: From Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Everywhere


Best ads 2

This book provides a great time line of the Occupy Wall Street phenomena (for lack of a better word) spreading across the world. I've been following Greg Mitchell's blog as a pithy, always current distillation of what is going on at #OWS. He's got a sense of history, politics, and, thank god, humor. He's a wonderful guide to this movement for those of us that are primarily spectators due to circumstance.

This book is simply a daily summary of each of the most interesting events related to the protests. It is written in a very personal style in which you get a sense a somewhat weathered, been-there, canny uncle is taking you through the day's OWS events.

Unfortunately missing are the photos that accompany his blog, but there are hyperlinks that allow you to click into the photos, as well as other relevant articles.

I see this book as a great reference source for researchers in the future. It is not a narrative or a comprehensive analysis of the movement, simply each day's listings of events. It's kinda too early for the former -- these are indeed the early days of OWS.
