We live in times when large numbers of people are participating in democracy in deeper and more meaningful ways. From India to the United States to Hong Kong, democratic societies have seen movements that have brought about change. They have one thing in common: large scale participation by civil society and individuals and the absence of organized political parties. How can individuals make their participation more effective? This book talks about ways in which the best campaigning organizations in the world effect change in democratic societies, how a citizen can engage with others who are likeminded, and how vibrant and participative action by citizens makes democracy better and more responsive. Featuring political cartoons that have the power to inspire, outrage or amuse,Â The Anarchist CookbookÂ is a book for our times.
