"This intimate, moving, and timely collection of essays points the way to a world in which the burden of grief is shared, and pain is reconfigured into a powerful force for social change and collective healing." —Astra Taylor, author The People's Platform "A primary message here is that from tears comes the resolve for the struggle ahead." —Ron Jacobs, author of Daydream Sunset "Rebellious Mourning uncovers the destruction of life that capitalist development leaves in its trail. But it is also witness to the power of grief as a catalyst to collective resistance." —Silvia Federici, author of Caliban and the Witch We can bear almost anything when it is worked through collectively. Grief is generally thought of as something personal and insular, but when we publicly share loss and pain, we lessen the power of the forces that debilitate us, while at the same time building the humane social practices that alleviate suffering and improve quality of life for everyone. Addressing tragedies from Fukushima to Palestine, incarceration to eviction, AIDS crises to border crossings, and racism to rape, the intimate yet tenacious writing in this volume shows that mourning can pry open spaces of contestation and reconstruction, empathy and solidarity. With contributions from Claudia Rankine, Sarah Schulman, David Wojnarowicz, Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, David Gilbert, and nineteen others. Cindy Milstein is the author of Anarchism and Its Aspirations, co-author of Paths toward Utopia: Graphic Explorations of Everyday Anarchism, and editor of the anthology Taking Sides: Revolutionary Solidarity and the Poverty of Liberalism.

English summary: The essays in this collected volume deal with the phenomenon of military mobilisation by civilians outside regular armies. The objects of study are militias, civil defense groups and nationalist or working class 'combat groups' that in conventional military or political history are usually represented as less effective and provisional than professional or conscripted armies. In contrast, the thesis of this book starts from the assumption that a comparative analysis of these irregular mobilisations can reveal new perspectives about the respective societies since the establishment of a militia or free corps (as opposed to regular or professional armies) was based less on standard procedures or constituencies than on actual power constellations, collective ideas of political order, and political culture. In this volume, 15 German and two English essays present a basis for such a comparative analysis of 'informal militia groups' in Europe from the Renaissance to the present day. German description: Die Beitrage dieses Sammelbands behandeln das Phanomen der militarischen Mobilisierung von Zivilisten ausserhalb regularer Armeen. Zum Untersuchungsgegenstand werden damit all jene Milizen, Burgerwehren und nationalistischen oder auch proletarischen Kampfgruppen, die in der konventionellen Militar- und Politikgeschichte im Schatten der Berufs- und Wehrpflichtarmeen standen und die als wenig geschichtswirksame Provisorien dargestellt wurden. Demgegenuber geht dieser Band von der These aus, dass gerade eine vergleichende Analyse dieser irregularen Mobilisierungen neue Perspektiven auf die jeweilige Gesellschaft eroffnen kann, war doch die Aufstellung einer Miliz oder eines Freikorps weniger stark durch normierte Verfahren als durch situative Herrschaftskonstellationen, kollektive Ordnungsvorstellungen und die politische Kultur getragen. Fur eine solche vergleichende Analyse der Mobilisierung von Nicht-Militars in Europa zwischen Renaissance und Gegenwart legen die vorliegenden 15 deutschen und zwei englischen Beitrage erstmals eine Grundlage.
