Street Spirit is a celebration of 50 extraordinary protests and demonstrations from around the world that have used humor, courage, absurdity and creativity to make their mark. Among the many instances of imaginative defiance within, you'll discover the surprising impact of Lego figures in Siberia, red-hatted dwarves in Poland, and a donkey holding a press conference in Azerbaijan--not to mention the story of how Darth Vader helped to effect a global arms treaty. With over 100 photographs and accompanying commentary on the power of non-violent protest from human rights campaigner Steve Crawshaw, who has been an eye-witness to some of the most dramatic demonstrations of recent years, Street Spirit is a unique visual guide that will inspire, enlighten and entertain.
