What People are Saying About This

Wendy Brown
Can democracy—the power of the people—be realized? Antonio Negri offers a deeply erudite, relentlessly political, and at times poetic meditation on democracy. Insurgencies is elegant, original, provocative and powerful thinking...This is political theory as it is hardly ever done anymore, political theory that idelibly transforms both its object of study and its reader. (Wendy Brown, University of California, Santa Cruz)
