Publisher Comments:

This timely Reader plays an important role in the field of social movements. It fills a significant gap by covering a number of connected areas within social studies.

Responding to growing demand for interpretation and analysis of re-emerging social conflicts in the developed, as well as the developing world, this timely collection is the outcome of the recent boost received by social movement studies since the spread of contention and collective action at international level and the growth of the 'anti-globalization? movement.

Intended not only as a comprehensive introduction for undergraduates and postgraduates studying social movements, this volume also provides a truly global perspective, combining classic sociological thought and contemporary concerns.

This book provides an essential guide to ?who is who? in the field of social movement studies and includes reflective and documentary material on contemporary conflicts. This volume is also an incredibly valuable resource for more general modules on sociological theory, global sociology, the history of sociological thought, contemporary social theory, and international and globalization studies.

Book News Annotation:

Ruggiero (sociology, Middlesex U., UK, and U. of Pisa, Italy) and Montagna (global social movements, Middlesex U.) offer a reader for undergraduate and graduate sociology students on social movements that focuses on themes of conflict, movements, and social change. The 45 readings in schools of thought relating to collective action, hegemony and collective behavior, resource mobilization, the political process, and globalization, and new social movements and theories include those by contemporary and classic thinkers like Karl Marx, Frederick Engels, Émile Durkheim, Georg Simmel, Max Weber, Antonio Gramsci, Anthony Oberschall, Jürgen Habermas, Sara Evans, and Alain Touraine.
