Zibechi goes to Bolivia to learn. Like us, he goes with questions, questions that stretch far beyond the borders of Bolivia. How do we change the world and create a different one? How do we get rid of capitalism? How do we create a society based on dignity? What is the role of the state and what are the possibilities of changing society through anti-state movements? ..the most important practical and theoretical questions that have risen from the struggles in Latin America and the world in the last fifteen years or so..book is beautiful, exciting, stimulating..Do read it and also give it your friends. John Holloway, from the Foreword "Ra?l Zibechi recounts in wonderful detail how dynamic and innovative Bolivian social movements succeeded in transforming the country. Even more inspiring than the practical exploits, though, are the theoretical innovations of the movements, which Zibechi highlights, giving us new understandings of community, political organization, institution, and a series of other concepts vital to contemporary political thought." Michael Hardt, co-author of Empire, Multitude, and Commonwealth. This, Ra?l Zibechi's first book translated into English, is an historical analysis of social struggles in Bolivia and the forms of community power instituted by that country's indigenous Aymara. Dispersing Power, like the movements it describes, explores new ways of doing politics beyond the state, gracefully mapping the "how" of revolution, offering valuable lessons to activists and new theoretical frameworks for understanding how social movements can and do operate independently of state-centered models for social change. Ra?l Zibechi is one of Latin America's leading political theorists, an international analyst for Brecha (Montevideo, Uruguay), professor at the Multiversidad Franciscana de Am?rica Latina, and author of Genealog?a de la Revuelta and Autonom?as y Emancipaciones: Am?rica Latina en Movimiento. Ramor Ryan is an Irish writer and trans.
