Book Review - Amorphous Dissent
Our book Amorphous Dissent has been featured in an academic journal, as follows.
“Amorphous Dissent takes up recent social movements that have formed a significant presence in Japanese society since 3.11, such as the protests against nuclear power plants, the movement opposing the Security Law, Amateur Revolt, rallies to counter hate speech, and the anti-base movement in Okinawa. The authors positioned them as new movements against the background of social disorganization and deinstitutionalization. This is a good book that offers a vision of the potential for social movements to respond to globalization.”
