This is the second edition of a reader on social movements, edited by arguably two of the biggest names in the sub-field of social movements within sociology. The collection of readings is organized theoretically (rather than historically) and views social movements as best analyzed accordingto dynamics and internal / external processes. It is a compilation introducing examples of the most salient sociological / theoretical lenses that have been produced by social movement scholars in the 20th century.
Doug McAdam is Professor of Sociology at Stanford University and former Director of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.
