'The consequences of globalization and rapidly growing urbanization for shaping social movements are yet to be fully understood. In this elegant cross-cultural exploration of demonstrations, movements and risings, scholars will find a framework and a set of questions that will shape future research. This is a masterful and foundational work.'

Peter K. Manning, Elmer V.H. and Eileen M. Brooks Chair in Policing, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Northeastern University, USA

'In this moment of global crisis and conflict between people and the police, this book reminds us of the roots of the clashes and the difficult struggles of disenfranchised groups for security and dignity in the face of resistance from the state. Public Disorder and Globalization realizes the remarkable intellectual achievement of showing the contested moral and political spaces and meanings at the heart of these conflicts. We see inside police institutions in three global cities to understand the meaning of order and contested space to the state, and how police notions of disorder threaten state actors and political elites. We see how the state, through its police apparatus, reshapes the struggle for recognition and belonging of those on the outside into social and political threat that invites harsh responses to control both people and spaces. This is a wonderful book that uses thick case studies where the state speaks in its own voice to reveal the justifying ideology for its use of harsh social control to reinforce the power of the elites and frustrate the search for dignity of those left behind.'

Jeffrey Fagan, Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law, Columbia University, USA
