Occupying Political Science: The Occupy Wall Street Movement from New York to the World

By Emily Welty (Editor), Matthew Bolton (Editor), Meghana Nayak (Editor), Christopher Malone (Editor)

Occupying Political Science is a collection of critical essays by New York based scholars, researchers, and activists, which takes an unconventional look at the Occupy Wall Street movement through concepts found in the field of political science. Both normative and descriptive in its approach, Occupying Political Science seeks to understand not only the origins, logic, and prospects of the OWS movement, but also its effect on political institutions, activism, and the very way we analyze power.
