Dancing with Dynamite: social movements and states in Latin America

Dancing with Dynamite

Benjamin Dangl explores the complex ways that social movements in Latin America have worked with, against, and independently of national governments.

From dynamite-wielding miners in Bolivia to the struggles of landless farmers in Brazil and Paraguay, Dangl discusses the dance between movements and states in seven different Latin American countries. Using original research, lively prose, and extensive interviews with workers, farmers, and politicians, he suggests how Latin American social movement strategies could be applied internationally to build a better world now.

"Dancing with Dynamite dares to navigate the cloudy waters of Latin American social movements in the wake of the neoliberal wave, something which increasingly fewer thinkers and activists dare to do, but which turns out to be urgent."
—Raúl Zibechi
