Prof. Delmas’ recent published book ‘A Duty to Resist: When Disobedience Should Be Uncivil’

Prof. Candice Delmas puts forward a groundbreaking theory that resisting injustice is itself a civic duty, which sometimes requires breaking the law. Using today’s social movements such as Black Lives Matter, the anti-Trump resistance, and feminist activism in Europe and Russia as examples, Professor Delmas turns a major tradition in political theory against itself by offering the first sustained case for political obligations to resist unjust laws and offers the first philosophical treatment of uncivil disobedience, its defensibility, and its limits.
