When no one's listening, it takes more than shouting louder to be heard . Street Spirit is a celebration of some of the most remarkable protests from around the world that have used humour, courage and creativity to bring about change. 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"When a totalitarian society faces creative protests, it is like ice meeting fire . . . Street Spirit is a relevant and powerful book for our times." --Ai Weiwei, Foreword
"In Street Spirit, Steve Crawshaw distills decades of wisdom, experience and optimism from around the world. This potent cocktail will be feared by tyrants everywhere - but to all those who will brandish it proudly or read it in the dark, he brings light, hope and ammunition for people-led change." --Shami Chakrabarti, author, On Liberty
