Resumen

Shutting down the streets revamps the literature on social control and reveals the significance of protest policing in the era of alterglobalization. Based on direct observation of more than 20 global summits, the book demonstrates that socialcontrol is not only global, but also preemptive, and that it relagete dissent to the realm of criminality. The authors document in detail how social control forecloses the spaces through which social mocementsnurture the development of dissent and effect disruptivachallenges, showing that much "policing of protest" is political violence against democracy.
