Defiant Discourse cover

Katriel examines multiple context of “defiant discourse” which cross the line between words and actions. Through participant observation, she documents activism in Israel. She asks questions about when talk itself serves as activism, and when action is called for. She examines activism “as a discursive formulation in which speech and action are defining features of the political realm,” pointing out that both speech and action are “world-making activities.”
