Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Marxism and Social Movements is the first sustained engagement between social-movement theory and Marxist approaches to collective action. The chapters collected here, by leading figures in both fields, discuss the potential for a Marxist theory of social movements. Exploring struggles on six continents over 150 years, it sets a new agenda both for Marxist theory and for movement research.

Synopsis:

Exploring struggles on six continents over 150 years, this collection shows the power of Marxism to address broad social movements.
