From the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street, a wave of protest swept across the world in 2011 as millions of people said “Enough!” to unaccountable systems of political and economic power. Read all about it in Global Fire, Local Sparks: Best of The Indypendent 2011. The articles compiled in the Indy's first book are a combination of on-the-ground reporting of history as it unfolds, sharp analysis that puts the events of the day in a deeper context and a willingness to stop and explore big ideas that shape how we see the world and our place in it.
