Interesting theme, very bad graphics. A self styled radical book doesn't always need radical design. there was no point at all in having random pages in pink and blue with black print and it's a B***h to read. ( )

From political activism comes the art of protest, symbols, and designs that defy standard definitions. This timely book shows how objects can change the world by out-designing authority. Included are arts of rebellion from around the globe: banners, defaced currency, designs for barricades and blockades, political video games, an inflatable general assembly to facilitate consensus decision-making, experimental activist-bicycles, and textiles bearing witness to political murders, along with earlier inspirational objects of protest such as a suffragette tea set and the barricades and balloons of the Paris Commune. Disobedient Objects focuses on the period from 1980 to the present, a time that brought new technologies and political challenges to protest movements.
