From the Publisher"[T]imely and refreshing . . . I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend it very highly not only to academics in political science and sociology and communications, but also to social marketing professionals and public policy advocates who will find the ideas presented to be very thought provoking."

"In The Marketing of Rebellion, Clifford Bob turns a world upside down. . . . The Marketing of Rebellion is a wonderful, rich and incisive study of . . . Southern social movements and the way in which they capture global attention. . . . Bob provides a service by helping future movements both understand the motivations in the North and weigh the costs and benefits of participating in the market."

"[O]ne academic book. . . that could be unhesitatingly recommended to a local activist searching for transnational allies. . . [P]rovides an excellent method of analysis. . . [and] a harsh but not unrealistic picture of [global civil society]."

"I highly recommend [it] for students of global studies, international and comparative politics, and especially social movement scholars interested in the transnational dimensions of popular struggles in the global South. The study offers a major contribution to our understanding of the conditions leading to the emergence of broad transnational linkages between poor challengers and better-off advocates in the age of globalization."
Paul Almeida, American Journal of Sociology
