Abstract [en]

Stefan Jonsson reviews the traditional image conveyed by crowd theory – the crowd as ‘dangerous, chaotic and unpleasant’ – stressing the continuing and even renewed importance of crowd action today. According to Jonsson, if crowds inevitably raise the issue of the foundations of power, it is because their act is, in the horizon of modernity, an essentially politically constituent one.
