Successive waves of global protest since 1999 have encouraged leading contemporary political theorists to argue that politics has fundamentally changed in the last twenty years. Elite, representative institutions have lost their gloss and a new type of politics is gaining momentum.

With over 40 chapters written by a group of leading academics in the field and activists on the ground, The Routledge Handbook of Radical Politics serves as an important reference for students and scholars interested in the politics, practices and ideas of contemporary radical activist movements. Capturing the dynamism and innovative practices of contemporary radical politics, the contributors shows how radicalism is understood by activists in contemporary movements, describe the cultures of radical activist groups and highlight the intersections of radical activism and contemporary political theory.
