Social Movements: A Reader Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

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.

Synopsis:

This timely reader provides an anthology of the literature on social movements, including the key texts relating to the notions of conflict, social change and collective action. The editors have selected and commented on the cameos found in this field of analysis and research, from classical sociology through to contemporary social movement theory.
