Overview

Group Politics and Social Movements in Canada provides a set of case studies that cover a wide range of organized group and social movement activity in Canadian politics. Particularly distinctive is the inclusion of Quebec nationalism and Aboriginal politics as fields of social movement politics. Newer groups that have become more important in recent years are also included: anti-poverty organizing; race, disability, and lesbian and gay politics; Christian evangelical groups; and health social movements. Contributors to the collection employ a number of theoretical perspectives from political science and sociology to describe the evolution of organized groups and movements and to evaluate successes in exercising influence on Canadian politics. The diversity of approaches is one of the strengths of the volume. Each chapter provides an overview of the group or movement along with an account of its main networks and organizations, strategies, goals, successes, and failures.

Special Combined Price: Group Politics and Social Movements in Canada may be ordered together with A Civil Society? Collective Actors in Canadian Political Life at a special discounted price. In order to secure the package price, the following ISBN must be used when ordering: 978-1-55402-779-8.

What People Are Saying

William K. Carroll

Group Politics and Social Movements in Canada will be of great value to students of sociology and political science alike. Miriam Smith has assembled an excellent team of emerging experts and established scholars who cover a wide range of issues-from ethnicity, gender, religion, and nationalism to environment, disability, and health. Soundly grounded in critical traditions such as political economy, this is a collection that does analytic justice to the complexity and dynamism of movement politics in contemporary Canada.
