Summary Cultural Politics and Resistance in the 21st Century demonstrates that twenty-first-century social struggles organize themselves around a distinct set of political discourses and practices. By analyzing the cases present in this volume, the editors develop important steps towards a theory of social change that can adequately address the complex realities and intersectionality of identity (race, gender, class, sexuality, nationality) within and among these new movements
