'Revolting Subjects' is a groundbreaking account of social abjection in contemporary Britain, exploring how particular groups of people are figured as 'revolting' as well as the practices through which they in turn 'revolt' against their abject subjectification. The book utilises a number of high-profile and in-depth case studies - including 'chavs', asylum seekers, Gypsies and Travellers and the 2011 London riots - to examine the ways in which individuals negotiate restrictive neoliberal ideologies of selfhood. In doing so, Tyler argues for a deeper psycho-social understanding of the role of representational forms in producing marginality, social exclusion and injustice, whilst also detailing how stigmatisation and scapegoating is resisted through a variety of aesthetic and political strategies.
