    DescriptionOur world is changing dramatically. The global economic crisis has given way to social crisis: corrupt and dictatorial politics enmeshed with a global financial elite - and an ever-widening gulf between the haves and have-nots. In 2011 this profound disconnect found expression in events that we were told had been consigned to history: revolt and revolution. In this compelling new book, Paul Mason sets out to explore the causes and consequences of this new wave of struggle. From London to Cairo, Wisconsin to Tehran, he charts the new forms of collective action: fluid networks of agile, Twitter- and Facebook-savvy networks of youthful protesters who understand how power works. The events, says Mason, reflect the expanding power of the individual and call for new ways of thinking about political alternatives, elite rule and global poverty.

    Review quote
    Praise for Meltdown: "A page-turning account - Mason is refreshingly clear-eyed - and angry." Will Hutton, Guardian; "What people need is a reliable guide to the financial crisis - Meltdown is the book they are looking for." John Gray, New Statesman; "A lucid and sharply polemical account of the crisis." Oliver Kamm, The Times.
