Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text discusses the role of social movements in the recovery and expansion of democracy and justice in the 21st century. The book combines an analysis of several modernization theses with respect to the role of social movements, with a sense of the way that American ideological and institutional context has shaped progressive social movements. The author pays homage to modern notions like reason, the rule of law and class consciousness as a way of expanding the impact of the social movements. The topics covered include political and social theory, movement history, institutional analysis, ideology, activism, and the instigation of change.

Synopsis:

In Tangled Up in Red, White, and Blue, Christine Kelly examines the role that progressive social movements might play in the recovery and expansion of democracy and justice in the new millennium. Kelly simultaneously combines an analysis of several modernization theses with respect to the role of social movements, with a unique sense of the way that the American ideological and institutional context has shaped progressive social movements, for better and worse, in our era. Kelly candidly confronts contemporary American radicalism from the perspective of a movement participant included is a rare treatment of the 1980s student movement but with an eye on the future. Tangled Up in Red, White, and Blue is a bold and sophisticated study combining the frequently divorced interests of political theory, institutional analysis, and social movement studies both European and American.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 175-181) and index.
