Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

To those among us who get their news via mainstream channels--television, newspapers, public radio--the "battle of the Brooklyn Bridge" may have come as a shock. The movement called Occupy Wall Street had received precious little media attention until Saturday, October 1, 2011, when an idea that arose at Adbusters--a semi-obscure, anti-capitalist magazine based in Vancouver, BC--galvanized hundreds of New York City protesters, who then attempted nothing more than to march across one of the most hallowed symbols of accomplishment in the United States. On the bridge itself, police arrested more than 700 protesters, as is now well known, and thanks to viral videos, the whole world was watching. In The Battle of the Brooklyn Bridge, Will Bunch captures the spirit of the day from the sympathetic viewpoint of those who claim that "We are the 99%." And how. His extended essay--part reportage, part oral history--nails the screaming immediacy of the events with the eloquence of scholar and the pace of a straightforward thriller. As of its publication date, the long-term import of this event has yet to play out, but Bunch's gripping narrative of the day's events will provide a lasting testament to those who were there, and an eye-opening call to attention for the rest of us. --Jason Kirk
