Identity, Place, Knowledge Looks Closely At The Knowledge That Arises From Activist Practice And Its Significance For Enacting New, Democratic Politics. The Result Is A Innovative Approach To The Study Of Social Movements That Combines Activist Ethnography With Wide-Ranging Theoretical Discussions In Political Economy, Cultural Studies, Critical Pedagogy And Urban Theory. This Allows Us To See How A Local Social Movement Interfaces With The Global Conjuncture Of The Anti-Globalization Movements, 9/11 And The Resurgence Of Empire.
