Summary Martin Luther King once insisted that ""a riot is the language of the unheard."" Both a consideration of the ethics and politics of militant protest and the story of dissidents and their actions post 1968, Languages of the Unheard argues that militancy is not a danger to democratic norms of consensus-building. Instead, it is a legitimate remedy for elite intransigence and unresponsive systems of power that ignore, or silence, the people
