The Presidential Nominating Process: A Place for Us?by Jeff Goodwin
Fifteen chapters by sociologists and other social scientists consider the conflicts, gaps, and interrelations between the two dominant approaches to social movement theorythe dominant structural approach and the cultural (or constructivist) approach. In the process, they evaluate political process theory and its influence on the field, look at the role of post-structuralism, consider cognitive and emotive aspects to social science research, and examine historical social movements.
