Overview

Frames of Protest brings together important empirical research and theoretical essays by leading sociologists, political scientists, and media specialists that focus on social movement frames and framing practices. Frames are new ways of understanding political and social relations that emphasize injustice and the need for change. As such, they are crucial for the development of social movements and protest. Frames of Protest is the only book to focus exclusively on this major research perspective in social movement and protest studies. Thirteen chapters encompass the major themes in the framing perspective to offer a state-of-the-art review. Three chapters present evidence for the determining influence of framing in social movement mobilization. Next, framing activities by the state and the mass media are analyzed. Then, two research reports examine the effect of political opportunities on framing-in Poland under the Communists and in New York City's ethnic politics. Several chapters by leading theorists present a lively debate about the relationship of ideologies to collective action frames. The book closes with a hands-on discussion about analyzing textual materials and interview transcripts to do frame analysis that lends itself to longitudinal and cross-case comparisons.

Editorial Reviews

Political Studies Review
By producing a systematic comprehensive work they offer something new that is a great step towards defining the framing perspective as a new academic sub-field in its own right. While non-specialists and students will benefit most from this book with its substantial overview of the relevant literature, the ideology vs. frame debate contained in the final chapters will trigger a great deal of debate among academic scholars. 2007
Choice
With useful material on framing and the mobilization process, nonmovement actors, political opportunity structures, and debates within the framing perspectives, this collection provides a well-thought-out compendium of work in the area.
