  1. Slavoj Žižek · Trouble in Paradise: The Global Protest · LRB 18 July 2013

    “To demand consistency at strategically selected points where the system cannot afford to be consistent is to put pressure on the entire system.”

  2. Google Answers: Trying to remember which Vonnegut book I’m thinking of

    “The Only Way to Have a Successful Revolution in Any Field of Human Activity” including the three kinds of people required, from ‘Bluebeard’. (via @genmon)

  3. Arab spring: an interactive timeline of Middle East protests | World news | guardian.co.uk

    This is nicer than my rash knee-jerk dislike of whizziness made me think. Works well as an overview and journey. There’s a bit of a disconnect between country names and events, and I want to see more time at once, but nice and clear otherwise. (via Max Gadney)

  4. LRB · Jeremy Harding · Where the Jihadis Are

    Interesting review of a book that interviews Muslim suicide bombers around the world, and those in the West trying to stop them (Congress, CIA, NATO, etc). Fascinating, but subscribers only.

  5. Albert Einstein Institution - Publications - 005 From Dictatorship to Democracy

    Full PDF text of this 1993 book by Gene Sharp, who was interviewed on ‘Today’ this morning. It’s apparently been cited by some of those in the current revolutions.

  6. BBC - Newsnight: Paul Mason: Twenty reasons why it’s kicking off everywhere

    Really, really worth a read, about the nature of young, disparate and distributed protest movements these days. “During the early 20th century people would ride hanging on the undersides of train carriages across borders just to make links like these.” (via Ben Hammersley)

  7. Amazon: Listmania! - View List “Revolutions and State Collapse”

    Damn, I need to find a few spare months from somewhere. These all sound fascinating.
