When I read Chris Dixon’s Another Politics, I realized that he had
staged, recorded, and analyzed many more insightful conversations with
contemporary radical activists than I could have imagined. This book
not only allows the reader to feel a part of these conversations about
radical movements of today, it also helps us to identify key points of
convergence and possible future directions for social justice
movements in our part of the world.
—Angela Y. Davis, from the foreword

Amidst war, economic meltdown, and ecological crisis, a “new spirit of
radicalism is blooming” from New York to Cairo, according to Chris
Dixon. In Another Politics, he examines the trajectory of efforts that
contributed to the radicalism of Occupy Wall Street and other recent
movement upsurges. Drawing on voices of leading organizers across the
United States and Canada, he delivers an engaging presentation of the
histories and principles that shape many contemporary struggles.

Dixon outlines the work of activists aligned with anti-authoritarian,
anti-capitalist, and anti-oppression politics and discusses the
lessons they are learning in their efforts to create social
transformation. The book explores solutions to the key challenge for
today’s activists, organizers, fighters, and dreamers: building a
substantive link between the work of “against,” which fights ruling
institutions, and the work of “beyond,” which develops liberatory
