About this book

Pairing cultural analysis in urban contexts with interdisciplinary approaches to political culture, this book argues that recent cultural production in Spain grapples with the conditions and possibilities for social transformation in dialogue with the ongoing crisis, neoliberal governance, and political culture in Spain's democratic history.

Reviews

"A detailed, perceptive, and elegantly written analysis of activist and cultural responses to today's economic crisis in Spain, stressing the positive role of the emotions and affect in the new social movements, and critiquing the inadequacy of attempts to explain the phenomenon by politicians and the media." - Jo Labanyi, New York University, USA

"This book offers a very original, witty, and well-researched interpretation of very recent cultural and political events in Spain. Snyder creates an extremely singular itinerary of analysis that includes works that respond to the economic/political crisis, and provides a whole new sense for the understanding of culture and politics." - Susana Draper, Princeton University, USA
