A 'good read' sorely needed to fill a gap in the political science literature on social movements.
A wide range of movements are examined. Written in an accessible style, this book is aimed at students of social movements from undergradute level onwards.
Freeman, Johnson, and their fellow authors survey American social movements since the 1960s with enthusiasm and perspicacity, forcing us to recognize how movement activity has transformed American life over the last half-century.
Fresh, timely, and widely useful. . . . Readers are informed about a wide range of movements as well as given conceptual tools to analyze them.
My students like this book. They tell me they plan to keep it.
The current generation of political science students will appreciate the useful summaries and valuable analyses of movements' political strategies within the structures of the American political system.
This is a highly useful and empirically rich collection that considers movements since the sixties as a protest wave. Indeed, the movements here are a tsunami of challenge and contention that will pique the interest of students.
This is an important contribution to the development of political thought.
Waves of Protest is excellent social science. It is well-written, empirical, and intellectually stimulating. The book will be useful for students and scholars of political science, sociology, and social movements, and for people interested in working in such movements. In comparison with other sociological treatments of organizational behavior, Waves of Protest provides theoretical breadth, new concepts about organizations, and substantive empirical results. It offers new understanding of recent U.S. social history.
