    DescriptionOriginally published in 2012 to wide acclaim, this updated edition, Why It's STILL Kicking Off Everywhere, includes coverage of the most recent events in the wave of revolt and revolution sweeping the planet - riots in Athens , student occupations in the UK, Quebec and Moscow, the emergence of the Occupy Movement and the tumult of the Arab Spring. Economic crisis, social networking and a new political consciousness have come together to ignite a new generation of radicals. BBC journalist and author Paul Mason combines the anecdotes gleaned through first-hand reportage with political, economic and historical analysis to tell the story of today's networked revolution. Why It's STILL Kicking Off Everywhere not only addresses contemporary struggles, it provides insights into the future of global revolt.

    Review quote
    'COMPACT, URGENT, PRESENT-TENSE, DECLARATIVE, AND ADDICTIVE.' GUARDIAN 'Mason has emerged as possibly the most engaged mainstream journalist of our age.' George Eaton, New Statesman 'Concise global analysis with sympathetic news from the frontline, revealing angry and scared people staring into a bleak future amid the wreckage of shattered certainties.' Ian Birrell, Observer 'Lively, funny and engaging, trading in the energy derived from the thrill and significance of what he's witnessing.' Phil Harrison, Time Out
