Item description for Protest and Opportunities: The Political Outcomes of Social Movements by Sidney Tarrow Felix Kolb...

Although grass-roots social movements are an important force of social and political change, they quite often fail to achieve their lofty goals. Similarly, the inability of research to systematically explain the impact of such movements stands in sharp contrast to their emotional appeal. Protest, Opportunities, and Mechanisms attempts to rejuvenate current scholarship by developing a comprehensive theory of social movements and political change.
In addition to reviewing the existing literature on the political outcomes of social movements, this volume analyzes the examples of the American civil rights movement and anti-nuclear energy efforts in eighteen countries to forge a new understanding of their momentous impact.

Reviews - What do customers think about Protest and Opportunities: The Political Outcomes of Social Movements?

how not to learn how to do it  Apr 28, 2008
This is an academic's approach to protest, its analysis based on the "literature" and cursory , hoypothesis proving oriented case studies. Not for those who, like me, want to learn how to influence the powers that be to change policies through legitimised means or civil disobedience.
