    Abstract

    Review: William K. Carroll and Kanchan Sarker (Eds), 2016, A World to Win: Contemporary Social Movements and Counter-Hegemony. Arbeiter Ring: Winnipeg (413 pp., paperback, CAN$24.95) William K. Carroll and Kanchan Sarker’s A World to Win is a collection of writing by Canadian activists and activist-scholars on contemporary social movements which they see as constituting “agencies of counter-hegemony.” The book packs a lot into a small space: Part I’s seven chapters broadly discuss the situation of contemporary movements at a fairly general theoretical level; Part II’s seven chapters cover different specific movements in Canada; while Part III’s four explore the challenges of solidarity and alliance-building. Together these 18 chapters are very diverse in scope and style, but the tone is much more consistent, a tribute to good editing.
