Overview

One of the finest pieces of social historical analysis on movement politics! Grassroots Resistance offers readers a synthesis for the study of social movements and social change in twentieth-century America. Ordinary men and women occupy the foreground as movers of events rather than observers of history as Goldberg analyzes eight significant movements including the Industrial Workers of the World, the Ku Klux Klan, the Communist Party, and the John Birch Society. The book blends the focus of a historical perspective with the insights of sociological theory to give students both the necessary dimensions of time and human involvement and a theoretical lens through which to look at pieces of the past.
