New book from New Left Project

Spectrezine’s friends at the UK’s New Left project have published their first e-book.

It’s by Dan Hind and it’s on the Occupy movement and what they describe as ‘deliberative politics’. In Common Sense: Occupation, Assembly and the Future of Liberty, Hind makes a powerful case for the need to generalise the model of public meetings and discussion to empower 'the 99%' to reclaim the political realm for itself.  Read an interview with Dan Hind , in which he talks about the significance of the occupations, the collapse of neoliberal 'common sense', and the emancipatory potential of deliberation between equals.
