To oft has the formation of the Black Bloc been considered as politically impoverished by the overassertive echelons of media and academia. Yet Dupuis-Déri’s defense of the strategy as a viable form of resistance is both convincing and eruditely researched, drawn from a capacious stock of first hand experiences. To advocate direct action in the form of property damage and vandalism is no easy feat in the age of a flaccid, pacifist neoliberal doctrine that secretes the social imperative to remain at all costs in control of one’s socio-judicial conduct, and Dupuis-Déri presents an impassioned cry to the dissident movements of today to consider applying the Black Bloc stratagem in seeking a viable and effective tactic against the citadels of corporate capital.
