Tactical Performance tells fun, mischievous stories of underdogs speaking mirth to power - through creative, targeted activist performance in the streets of cities around the world.

This compelling, inspiring book also provides the first ever full-length practical and theoretical guide to this work. L.M.Bogad, one of the most prolific practitioners and scholars of this genre, shares the most effective non-violent tactics and theatrics employed by groups which have captured the public imagination in recent years.

Tactical Performance explores carnivalesque protest in unique depth, looking at the possibilities for direct action and sometimes shocking confrontation with some of the most powerful institutions in the world.

It is essential reading for anyone interested in creative pranksterism and the global justice movement.
