A World to Win

Edited by: William K. Carroll

In this time of economic, ecological and social crises, a diverse array of collective movements carry the possibilities of deep democratization and alternative futures. A World to Win brings these movements alive as agents of history-in-the-making. It situates Quebec student strikers, Indigenous resistance and resurgence, Occupy, workers, feminist and queer movements and many others in their struggle against the hegemonic institutions of capitalism. Using theory and case studies, this book articulates the particular histories and structures facing social movements while also building bridges to comprehensive analyses of our current era of crisis and change–in Canada and the world.

Contributors to A World to Win include well-known political and social theorists, activist-intellectuals who have made significant contributions to movement politics and emerging voices in this field. Bridging the conceptual and the practical, this book will be of value to activists whose interventions can be sharpened through critical reflection and to students and scholars who will find pathways to activism.

A World To Win is a very strong collection of essays that is timely and urgent; I recommend its publication in the strongest possible terms. The collection covers an impressive range of ground providing insightful analyses of several key social justice social movements defining the political landscape of the left in Canada today. – Dr. Sourayan Mookerjea, Department of Sociology University of Alberta
