The essays address: facilitative and constraining contexts and conditions; social movement organizations, fields, and dynamics; strategies and tactics; micro-structural and social psychological dimensions of participation; consequences and outcomes; and various thematic intersections, including the intersection of social movements and social class, gender, race and ethnicity, religion, human rights, globalization, political extremism and more.

  • Offers an illuminating guide to understanding the dynamics and operation of social movements within the modern, global world
  • Covers a diverse range of topics in the field of social movement studies
