Those crazy days when, giddy with the apparent success of the previous year’sArab Spring, independent, decentralized groups of protestors, connected by cell phones and social media, seized public spaces across America and.   Duncan Green, a year veteran of social justice and the author of a new book called 'How Change Happens,' says the real work happens after a protest.

      Then he, too, decided to write a book. The first half of The End of Protest delivers a rather dry history of activism, followed by a postmortem of Occupy itself. Nothing new or particularly.

More specific examples of social problems that are addressed in such works include poverty, conditions in factories and mines, the plight of child labor.
