Counterpower: Why Movements Succeed and Fail

by Tim Gee
£9.99   paperback  New Internationalist Publications Ltd (2011)

Counterpower: Why Movements Succeed and Fail by Tim Gee Change can and does happen. But why is it that some campaigns succeed while others fail? Is it luck, or is there a common strategy unifying those that have achieved their aim, and what can we learn from the past?
 
In Counterpower, activist Tim Gee seeks to get to the root of how change happens by taking an in-depth look at the strategies and tactics that have contributed to the success (or otherwise) of some of the most prominent movements for change from India’s Independence Movement to the Arab Spring. He concludes that any campaign is winnable in theory, but only if we are aware of our power.
