An ideal introduction for undergraduate students of social movements in courses on sociology, social policy and political theory with a focus on collective action and social protest. The book provides accessible theoretical readings and case studies of particular movements concerned with women's rights, ethnicity and 'race', disability, peace, anti-privatization. It explores issues of youth and political involvement, free speech and unemployment and the role of voluntary and community groups in challenging traditional perspectives on democracy. There are contributions from writers at the cutting edge of recent empirical and theoretical work in these areas. Competition: Many texts focus on sociological approaches: (Nick Crossley, Making Sense of Social Movements, D Della Porta and M Siani, Social Movements: an Introduction; S Buechler, Social Movements in Advanced Capitalism). Our text will provide students with an accessible, clear and comprehensive introduction and critical analysis of new social movements and new social movements theory.
