Immigrant Spring, Five Years On: What the 2006 Marches of Millions Can Tell Us About Today’s “Madison Moment”

Do mega-marches change the state of politics…even the course of history?  This essay articulates and applies the political “physics” that propel and paralyze the phenomenal forces behind the immigrants’ rights marches, the fight-back in Wisconsin against collective bargaining rights rollback, and the regime-change protests in Cairo.  Delivered as the Arthur Langlie Lecture at Whitman College, May 4, 2011.  (April 2011; 7 p)
