We Have Nothing to Lose But Our Fear: Activism and Resistance in Dangerous Times

by Fiona Jeffries
£14.99   paperback  Zed Books Ltd (2015)

We Have Nothing to Lose But Our Fear: Activism and Resistance in Dangerous Times by Fiona Jeffries Our 24/7 lives are saturated with round-the-clock fear. Scare-tactic headlines fill our homes and our public spaces. If itís not the war on terror, itís the new war on the middle class. Crisis is the new black, as catastrophe after casualty after crash shape the order of the day. Nothing to Lose But Our Fear delivers a counter blow to this rampant culture of fear fuelled by the likes of CNN, Fox and the Daily Mail.
 
Exploring contemporary and historical manifestations of this controlling force, the conversations in this collection go beyond just scrutinizing what constitutes rational versus irrational fear, or identifying ways in which human fears are manipulated by political players. They reveal how fear antagonizes and changes our subjectivity and, crucially, how the political use of fear has been resisted in different times and places, by different people across the globe.
