CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2006
"In this beautifully crafted study, Andrews . . . offers a compelling work of history and sociology. . . . Sociologically, the book is of tremendous worth for clarifying theoretical and methodological issues in the study of social movements and for advancing new insights. It is also an exemplary combination of quantitiative and qualitative analysis. . . . Whereas many scholars investigate the origins of social movements, Andrews delineates and assesses results, a decidedly more difficult endeavor that he handles with considerable skill. The author particularly concentrates on political participation, social welfare policies, school desegregation, and election of African Americans, devoting excellent chapoters to each."
