Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the book we have been waiting for--a comprehensive yet lucid overview accessible to beginning students of social movements that also provides a valuable review of the field for graduate students. Staggenborg has written the clearest, best organized, most systematic summary of social movement analysis available today." --David Walls, Sonoma State University

"I can say without reservation that this is the text I would choose the next time I teach social movements; I would also definitely recommend it to colleagues." --Steven Mizrach, Florida International University

"This is an excellent introduction to the field of social movements for undergraduates. Staggenborg is successful in condensing a vast and varied literature into a concise volume that is nonetheless faithful to the overall emphases and themes in the social field." --Ziad Munson, Lehigh University

"The author's prose is lucid, accessible, and appropriate for an undergraduate text. The book couches major theoretical perspectives and empirical questions within case studies that the students should find very interesting." --Andrew Martin, Ohio State University
