From the Back Cover
"Cultivating Community should be required reading for those who claim to speak for and about social movements - or politics in rural India generally for that matter. The analysis is subtle, wonderfully sophisticated and grounded in close ethnography even as Youngblood reaches out judiciously to grand theory. We learn much about not just mass mobilization and movements as social phenomena, but how to understand the dialectic of identity and interest, and leadership and symbol, in the formation of a politically consequential collective identity. This is political anthropology as it should be done. Bravo."
- Ronald J. Herring, Professor of Government and International Professor of Agriculture and Rural Development, Cornell University
"Critiquing the view that social movements are marked by shared identities and interests, Michael Youngblood's depiction of India's Shetkari Sanghatana elaborates a fascinating alternative that depicts this social movement as being dialogically constructed through multivocal symbols and shifting participant agendas. His engaging account offers valuable insights for students of Indian society and social movements more generally."
- John Echeverri-Gent, Department of Politics, University of Virginia
