Ideas for Action: Relevant Theory for Radical Change

by Cynthia Kaufman
£17.90   paperback  PM Press (2016)

Ideas for Action: Relevant Theory for Radical Change by Cynthia Kaufman Written in an engaging and accessible style, Ideas for Action gives activists the intellectual tools to turn discontent into a plan of action. Exploring a wide range of political traditions — including Marxism, anarchism, anti-imperialism, postmodernism, feminism, critical race theory, and environmentalism — Cynthia Kaufman acknowledges the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of political movements and the ideologies inspired by or generated through them. Kaufman incorporates elements of her own activist experiences and presents a coherent analysis without pretending to offer “the final word” on complex issues. Instead, she helps orient a critical understanding of the social world and a glimpse of the excitement and rewards of serious intellectual engagement with political ideas.
 
Fully updated to confront pressing issues of today — from mass incarceration to climate change, from the war on terror to the national security state, from rising inequality to a global shortage of care, Ideas for Action also examines the work of diverse thinkers such as Adam Smith, Paulo Freire, Grace Lee Boggs, and Stuart Hall. Kaufman’s insights break the chains of cynicism and lay a foundation for more effective organizing.
