Our modern lives are saturated with fear. If it's not the war on terror, it's the war on the middle class. The war on drugs. The war on war. Crisis dictates the daily discourse of our news feeds, and scare-tactic headlines fill our homes and public spaces. Nothing to Lose But Our Fear delivers a long-overdue counter-blow to this rampant culture of fear fueled by increasingly alarmist news outlets.
Fiona Jeffries explores contemporary and historical manifestations of this phenomenon through a series of conversations with eminent artists, journalists, and activists, such as Marcus Rediker, Silvia Federici, and David Harvey. Their discussions go beyond scrutinizing what constitutes rational versus irrational fear and identifying how politicians and reporters manipulate human fears. They go further, to reveal how that fear antagonizes our subjectivity and how different people across the globe have resisted the political use of fear throughout history.
