The Design of Dissent is a global collection of socially and politically driven graphics on issues including Black Lives Matter, Trump protests, refugee crises, and the environment.

Dissent
is an essential part of keeping democratic societies healthy, and our ability as citizens to voice our opinions is not only our privilege, it is our responsibility. Most importantly, it is a human right, one which must be fervently fought for, protected, and defended.

Many of the issues and conflicts visited in the first edition of this book remain vividly present today, as simmering, sometimes throbbing reminders of how the work of democracy and pace of social change is often incremental, requiring patience, diligence, hope, and the continuing brave voices of designers whose skillful imagery emboldens, invigorates, and girds us in the face of struggle.

The 160+ new works in this edition document the Arab Spring, the Obama presidency, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, the election of Donald Trump, Putin's continuing influence, the Women's March, the ongoing refugee crises, immigration, environment and humanitarian issues, and much more. This powerful collection, totaling well over 550 images, stands not only as a testament to the power of design but as an urgent call to action.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book's images will test the visual literacy and political awareness of many readers and will challenge preconceptions and assumptions." - Los Angeles Times
"In an age dominated by moving images, these freeze-frame visuals hold their own. They represent the activist strain of graphic design. Like contemporary advertising, it thrives on shock, wit and instant recognition. But as playwright Tony Kushner writes in the book's foreword, there must also be 'some galling truth . . . imprisoned beneath the surface of public discourse' that causes a designer to fire a signal flare." - Linda Hales, Washington Post
The subtitle of this new edition says it all. At a moment of political instability - not to say rage - Glaser, perhaps the most famous living American graphic designer, surveys recent posters and images that were made to provoke action. * The San Francisco Chronicle *
