A new type of political violence among young people has begun to gain momentum throughout Europe, a wave of militant political actions which has even entered the historically non-violent alternative political culture which once dominated in Sweden. In this book the author investigates this new wave of militancy where militant activists today are putting deeds before words claiming that it always pays to resist. Activists talking - their heads - has most often taken centre stage in analysis of political action. In this book the focus is upon the hearts and bodies of militant activists - that is, the role of emotions in militant actions, as well as the ways in which the body is implicated in militant political action.
