Wages of rebellion

Wages of rebellion

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy movement. In [this book], Chris Hedges--who has chronicled the malaise and sickness of a society in terminal moral decline in his books Empire of illusion and Death of the liberal class--investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians, and literary figures he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion--Provided by publisher.
