An engaging, illustrated book looking at the centuries old custom of charivari (the mock serenade using pots and pans, meant to shame someone) from the traditional British skimmington to contemporary versions in such places as Buenos Aires, Montréal, and New York City (where they were a feature of the Occupy Movement). In the past, as now, charivaris go beyond partisan politics to unite communities in protecting themselves and expressing outrage against economic and political power. As a form of community street theatre, charivari also has linkages with such things as modern happenings, efforts to resist control of the commons of cyberspace, other forms of satire and protest, and critiques about the integration of art and politics
