Direct Democracy: Collective Power, the Swarm, and the Literatures of the Americas is provocative and a new catalyst that reminds us there are literatures that motivate movements and communities. They offer models of experimentation and alternative approaches to the injustices and inequalities of the world in which we live. (Rocky Mountain Review)
Direct Democracy does a great service to anarchist politics in several ways. It helps to identify anarchist trends in politics that are easily conflated with archist forms of politics (although Henkel does not employ the language of anarchism and archism per se). By keeping his eye on the subtler forms of direct democracy (what Spinoza calls ‘absolute democracy’) and by refusing attempts to redefine that power out of existence, Henkel helps to identify and promote the anarchist kernel of politics. Furthermore, he helps to ensure that the radical nature of direct democracy is not limited to western models but is also located in radical traditions in African American, Latin American and Caribbean politics and literature. (James Martel, San Francisco State University Anarchist Studies) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
