Reviews
"Libraries amid Protest tells an important story about the physical, intellectual, and emotional heft of the collections of books that sprang into existence at sites of resistance during the 2010s. It presents a new perspective on the multilayered activities that make up protest movements and asks us to broaden our understanding of the symbolic and material significance of libraries."--Cheryl Knott, author of Not Free, Not for All: Public Libraries in the Age of Jim Crow

"I know of no other study that provides such a crucial historical chronicle about book culture within Occupy Wall Street and the movement of the squares. It's almost as if the author pried open a previously inaccessible archive of dissident knowledge and invited us inside."--Gregory Sholette, author of Delirium and Resistance: Activist Art and the Crisis of Capitalism

"Emerging amid defunded and privatized public resources and public spaces, protest libraries provide glimpses of another world that they help make possible. Libraries amid Protest: Books, Organizing, and Global Activism provides a valuable glimpse of these temporary but extraordinarily memorable libraries."--Library Quarterly
