Summary

Social Movementsis a core or supplemental text suitable for sociology courses for upper-year undergraduate students in both colleges and universities that examines collective behavior and how it relates to the emergence of social movements. Staggenborg lays out the natural cycle of social movements through the stages of maintenance, growth and decline. She contextualizes this theory by examining specific social movements such as the women's movement, the Aboriginal movement, and the environmental movement to see how these movements maximized their resources to achieve growth and further their goals.
