Greek, Spanish, and Turkish authorities arresting protesters
and firing tear gas, Egyptian and Syrian governments turning
off the Internet, people occupying public space in
Manhattan, mass demonstrations and protest activities
against corrupt regimes and unjust justice systems in Latin
America: People are expressing their discontent with the
political situation, demanding rights, wanting change, and
attacking governmental institutions and their actors, not
only in Latin America and the Middle East, but also
in the United States and Central and Southern Europe.

This volume is based on articles presented at the State of
Peace Conference in 2013. They all consider the question of
political power by discussing various manifestations of
civic discontent and state responses.
