Combining the strengths of both a reader and a textbook, this second edition of The Social Movements Reader not only expands on the collection of "classic" texts, but also provides the most important and readable articles and book selections on social movements from recent decades.
Requiring no prior knowledge about social movements, this new edition includes definitions of key concepts, biographies of exemplary leaders, new developments in the field, and timelines of several ongoing social movements.
Analysing the specific resources, networks, structures, and environments of social movements, as well as the motivating psychology, ideas, political debates, emotions, and personal and collective identities behind them, this is an engaging and illuminating collection for anyone curious about social movements.
