Cover Picture: 'La Sardane de la Paix' by Pablo Picasso. The sardane is a traditional circle dance from Catalonia which has come to symbolise the struggle of ordinary people against oppression, from Napoleon through Hitler and Franco and into the modern era. The individual dancer holds his or her hands in the air in a gesture of autonomy and empowerment, and is able to maintain what would quickly become a tiring stance thanks to the supporting hands of her fellow-dancers. It illustrates the key social marketing lesson that addressing complex social problems, such as climate change or inequalities - as with dictators - requires a combination of individual agency and collective action. It also shows that critical analysis, the questioning and challenging of the current system, lies at the heart of progressive social change, and that good social marketers should be rebels with a cause.
