Editorial Reviews


“In this thoughtful examination of the emergence and survival of the democratic teachers’ movement in Mexico, Maria Lorena Cook offers a rich case study central to several important debates in the fields of social movements, democratization, and Mexican studies. . . . It is a solid achievement worthy of high praise.”

American Journal of Sociology

Organizing Dissent represents a very valuable contribution to an understanding of the particular political factors that allow social movements not only to come into being, but also to survive in the context of authoritarian regimes. . . A timely contribution to the building of a better understanding of the conditions under which the democratic experience fostered through participation in social movements might be a tool for change in the hands of those so far consistently marginalized from power.”

Canadian Journal of Political Science

“Cook's superb book will be of wide interest to students of Mexican politics as well as social movement theory.”

Industrial and Labor Relations Review

“Cook’s richly documented study of the Mexican teachers’ movement proposes answers to two key questions: how do social movements emerge in repressive contexts, and what factors enable them to survive in such an environment? Her book will be a milestone in linking social movement theory with the study of political change in non-liberal settings like Mexico.”

—Sidney Tarrow, Cornell University
