Exciting news! Paul Mason, the Orwell-prize nominated journalist and economics editor of BBC's Newsnight, is embarking on a mini North American tour next week to promote his new book Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions. As part of his visit, he will be giving readings and discussions, weighing in on the past year's global revolutions from London to Cairo and Wisconsin to Tripoli.
Taking an especially close look at the resurgence of activism and political energy around the globe, Mason will be elaborating on Why It's Kicking Off's incisive account of both the rediscovered power of individual agency and the historically new forms of collective action at the disposal of younger activists. With his critical eye and thorough on-the-ground reportage, his appearances promise a clear-sighted look at the revolutionary movements, bringing into sharp relief the urges for political alternatives and democratic change being felt everywhere.
