The articles in this issue of Contention offer different perspectives on social protest, examining the roles of small activist collectives, organized policing efforts, local private politics, digital communities, and revolutionary vanguards in instances of collective action and political behavior. This issue concludes with an interview.
This issue of Democratic Theory draws together several key contributions to important ongoing debates. The articles offer a critique of the current push to ensure an objective standard of normative truth, a case for polarity as the fundamental structure of politics, an exploration of corporatism in global politics, and of the politics of democratic institutions. An interview and critical commentary follow.
