Editorial Reviews

Review

[A] provocative and engaging book. . . . As different as the two movements and their constituents were, Binder astutely shows that both used the rhetoric of pluralism, among other shared tactics, to make their cases.

From the Inside Flap

"The genius of this study is the comparison between two social movements that are ostensibly quite different in their constituencies but are structurally nearly identical. The author leverages this comparison to produce insights about each movement that would otherwise be elusive. Enjoyably written and always clear, it is a significant contribution to the study of culture and to the field of social movements research."--Paul DiMaggio, Princeton University

"Rarely have I so thoroughly endorsed a book, nor found so little to quarrel with in its focus, organization, or even textual detail. What makes Binder's book so important is that, while borrowing much from mainstream social movements theory, it also broadens the field considerably both by incorporating insights from a host of other literatures and by studying a form of institutionalized contention that has been largely ignored by other scholars."--Doug McAdam, Stanford University
