"Resistance comes in many different forms. It is ultimately about forming assemblies, engaging in collective and/or individual protests and it involves everything from direct oppositions to delay tactics, refusals to collaborate to the creation of alternatives, et cetera. In addressing 'everyday resistance', this timely and well-written book helps us in filling a gap in our current understanding of resistance (practices) and, by extension, social change. In close dialogue with other important scholars in the field, this illuminating, interesting, inspiring and important book is a needed corrective to the existing literature that provides some coherence and congruity to the emerging field of Resistance Studies. I would recommend it to a wide readership, to anyone interested in understanding the dynamics of current (world) politics." — Mikael Baaz, Associate Professor of International Law and Associate Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Gothenburg
