    Influential Works

    No Heroes! However there are some thinkers and publications who can be credibly cited as influential to the Occupy movement according to The Guardian.  Others can't help but see parallels with the Situationists. To find out what the occupiers are reading, you might look at what items are available in the People's Library at Occupy Wall Street. Or there is a fantastic reading list created by Mita Wililams, librarian at the University of Windsor. Of course if you find anything interesting, you might search for it in the York Libraries' online catalogue.
