What People are Saying About This

Sidney Tarrow

'Jeffrey Ayres's new book does the unlikely: It employs social movement theory to explicate the emergence and dynamics of an anti-NAFTA movement in Canada. Explaining this fascinating movement with skill and despatch, Ayres offers useful amendments to the theory he uses and reveals both the originality and the diffusion of Canadian opposition to North American economic integration. Both Canadians and their neighbors will do well to reflect upon both the story he tells and his superb way of telling it.'

Stephen McBride

'Ayres provides a theoretically informed, and empirically grounded account of the coalition against free trade and manages to do so in a readable and lively fashion.'

Mildred A. Schwartz

'This is an important book by a talented young scholar. Ayres demonstrates how new actors, using unconventional repertoires of action, are changing the Canadian political scene. As the same time, he adds to the lively field of social movement theory by his integrative approach.'

Robert Everett

'Defying Conventional Wisdom provides a crisp and thoughtful account of political phenomena still fresh in the memories of the Canadian public, relevant to ongoing policy-making processes and available to be mined for insights as various scholarly debates continue.'
