Our 24/7 lives are saturated with round-the-clock fear. Scare-tactic
headlines fill our homes and our public spaces. If it’s not the war on
terror, it’s the new war on the middle class. Crisis is the new black,
as catastrophe after casualty after crash shape the order of the day.
Nothing to Lose But Our Fear delivers a counter blow to this rampant
culture of fear fuelled by the likes of CNN, Fox and the Daily Mail.
Exploring contemporary and historical manifestations of this controlling force, the conversations in this collection go beyond just scrutinizing what constitutes rational versus irrational fear, or identifying ways in which human fears are manipulated by political players. They reveal how fear antagonizes and changes our subjectivity and, crucially, how the political use of fear has been resisted in different times and places, by different people across the globe.
'Multi-faceted, insightful, global: Fiona Jeffries' conversations
with some of our best contemporary theorists, activists, historians (and
frequently all three at once) confront fear head-on and come out
fighting. In-depth conversations tackle some of the thorniest topics
confronting activists and theorists today: how best to understand the
state? How best to fight against it? What types of global thinking and
resistance can help us to think - and act - otherwise.'
Nina Power, author of One-Dimensional Woman
'An eloquent and urgent book. Fiona Jeffries has assembled some of our planet's most important thinkers, who help us figure out the present in order to imagine a better future.'
Greg Grandin, author of The Empire of Necessity
'Here, like a family album of loved ones, is a collection from nine accomplished, active radicals whose biographical background helps introduce figures of resistance from our collective memory - the pirate, the migrant, the witch, the communard, the mother, the dispossessed, the Other - who recuperate our dignity through laughter, courage, truth, and indignation.'
Peter Linebaugh, author of Stop, Thief! The Commons, Enclosure, and Resistance
'A stimulant for hope. Passionate, positive, and practical, it suggests new ways to change our world.'
Joanna Bourke, author of Wounding the World: How Military Violence and War-Play Invade our Lives
