'The phenomenon of protest camps is finally given the attention it deserves. With an international remit and a huge range of historical and contemporary examples, Feigenbaum, Frenzel and McCurdy provide a theoretically robust yet also highly readable and inspiring investigation of what protest camps are, do, achieve and challenge. What is more it is packed full of great photographs, cartoons and diagrams.'
Jenny Pickerill, University of Leicester
'Much has been written about recent protests as digital networks, but too little about the physical process of continuously occupying significant space. Feigenbaum, Frenzel and McCurdy's wonderful book brings a fresh perspective to our understanding of contemporary political action, connecting to the history of occupations from Greenham onwards and offering smart conceptual tools for analysing both recent and historical events in all their richness, messiness and hidden order. A fine achievement.'
Nick Couldry, London School of Economics and Political Science
'An exciting, engaging and energizing book, Protest Camps is required reading for activists and academics interested in the history, politics and practice of the occupation of public space as a creative form of extra-parliamentary action.'
Sasha Roseneil, author of Disarming Patriarchy: feminism and political action at Greenham
'Analysing the global history and radical infrastructures of protest camps this book provides a captivating cartography that helps heal the chasm between how we live our everyday life and what our political ideas are, how we protest against the old world whilst proposing new ones. Best read (and discussed) around a (protest) camp fire.'
John Jordan, artist, activist and co-founder of the direct action protest movement 'Reclaim the Streets'
