From Cairo to Wall Street : voices from the global spring
Book Description: "From Cairo to Wall Street is a stirring, on-the-ground account of these protests, in the words of the people who made them happen. Journalists Anya Schiffrin and Eamon Kircher-Allen bring together voices from across the world, many from the front lines, to tell the story of movements that redefined history. We hear from the Egyptian youth leaders who transformed Tahrir Square into a symbol of freedom; we hear from the Indignados who raged against austerity measures in Spain's already-dark times; and we hear of the many Americans, from New York to Madison to Oakland, who marched under the banner 'We Are the 99%.' Chapters by Schiffrin, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz, economist Jeffrey D. Sachs, and columnist Laurie Penny frame these movements in the context of global capitalism and its discontents, drawing connections between the individual protest movements and the singular sense of outrage that has fueled them the world over." -- Provided by publisher.
