You may long for the protest to end all protests, a final revolution that eradicates injustice and transforms society. You dream of a better world in which protest is no longer necessary. You wish to make protest effective so that the ideals you hold become manifest. For you the end of protest is a consummation of activism, the completion of your work and objective of your struggle. You understand that the end of protest is in itself revolution.
This book will offer you tools for hastening social transformation. Recognizing that protest is one tool among many for creating social change, grab what works and discard the rest.
And if you are threatened by revolution, fearing or disdaining movements like Occupy, and you’ve come to this book from a desire to end protest—to foreclose dissent—know that this book is for you, too. Uprisings always need people who convert to the cause from positions of power: police who switch sides, insiders who become whistleblowers, and politicians who heed the people’s demands. You may oppose us today but you will join us tomorrow. Our movement is even stronger when it includes the converted, who understand the errors of the old world because they embodied them.
You may be skeptical of those who take to the streets, considering them reckless. They seem to have nothing to lose, and you have worked so hard to achieve your position, wealth and prestige. You may not sympathize with their anger. You may believe that good society ought to have few disruptions. True, many aspects of upheaval are unpleasant. Revolutions are sometimes violent and always have unintended consequences. “In a society such as ours,” writes Herbert Marcuse, a leading twentieth-century social theorist and philosopher, “in which pacification has been achieved up to a certain point, it appears crazy at first to want revolution. For we have whatever we want.” He continues with a prescription: “[T]he aim here is to transform the will itself, so that people no longer want what they now want.”3 You desire the end of protest, but the fulfilment of your desire would be disastrous for you.
The lack of protest is perilous for society. Protest is a symptom of the need for social change, and the people in the streets are harbingers of greater democracy. The absence of effective protest is a warning sign of impending civil strife. Whether you support or suppress protesters, history shows that dissent is necessary for social growth and collective renewal. Revolution grants us the social freedom essential for humans to break old habits and reach their true collective potential.

If you're looking for a cookbook to revolution, this is not the book for you. But, if you want to plumb the depth and breath of the causes and theory behind revolutionary change, or be forced to think creatively about how to disrupt and change our system all in order to produce a world with the capacity for a positive answer to the global challenges vexing us, then you'll find much here to ponder.
On a final note, it is worth saying that beyond its intellectual rigor and value, this book is written with a tremendous amount of love and humility. It is a dangerous line to walk between revolutionary vigor/vitality and sounding voyeuristic when one refers to revolutions as "beautiful," for instance. White not only walks this line, but implicitly draws it by demonstrating through his words and deeds - a collection of incredible hard work and self-sacrifice in the name of justice - that he is outside of himself and for others; that he is from our world and for our world, but he is not of it. I feel blessed to be an "early adopter" of White's ideas and to have the opportunity to spread the love and pay it forward as he has done for me and will undoubtedly do for millions, if not billions of people worldwide.
