Meslin’s Teardown: Rebuilding Democracy from the Ground Up calls ‘for a revolution against our own cynicism’

By Neil Moss      

Plus, Liberal candidate Allan Thompson releases book on Rwandan genocide, and MLI names Charles Burton and J. Michael Cole as new fellows.

Spring releases: From Righteousness to Far Right: An Anthropological Rethinking of Critical Security Studies, by Emma McCluskey; Teardown: Rebuilding Democracy from the Ground Up, by Dave Meslin; A Grander Vision: My Life in the Labour Movement, by Sid Ryan; and A New Kind of Union: Unifor and the Birth of the Modern Canadian Union, by Fred Wilson, are all out.

Spring has finally sprung and with it, more books. The latest, Teardown: Rebuilding Democracy from the Ground Up, by Dave Meslin, and published by Penguin Random House Canada, looks at how we can indeed build a more sustainable, healthy, and inclusive society.
