Summary
"Social Movements cleverly translates the art of collective action and protest to the university classroom. Students will learn the core components of social movements, the theory and methods used to study them, and the conditions under which they lead, at times, to political and social transformation. This fully class-tested textbook is the first to be organized along the lines of the major subfields of social movement scholarship--framing, movement emergence, recruitment, and outcomes--providing comprehensive coverage in a single core text. Features include: use of real data collected in the U.S. and around the world; the emphasis on student learning outcomes; case studies that bring social movements to life; examples of collateral used in movements (flyers, pamphlets, event data on activist websites, illustrations by activist musicians) to mobilize a group; topics such as immigrant rights, transnational movement for climate justice, Women's Marches, Fight for $15, Black Lives Matter, and the mobilization of movements in the global South over issues of authoritarian rule. With this book, your students will deepen their understanding of movement dynamics, methods of investigation, and dominant theoretical perspectives, all while challenging them to consider their own place in relation to social movements"--Provided by publisher
