Editorial Reviews


"Party in the Street shows how the antiwar movement stalled once it helped elect a president who seemed to agree with its goals - even as wars continued. This engaging and provocative book highlights an essential dilemma for activists in America: whether to work within mainstream politics or take the struggle outdoors. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with the fate of the peace movement or the rise and decline of social movements more generally."
David S. Meyer, University of California, Irvine

"Heaney and Rojas gathered data from tens of thousands of participants in anti-war protests in a massive empirical undertaking developing new methods of survey analysis and force us to reconceive the linkages between political parties and social movements. Who uses whom? Who needs the other more? What happens to a social movement when party activists attempt to use the movement for their own purposes? These are of course old questions in the study of social movements, but no scholars until now have explained so clearly the dangerous but inevitable linkages between party and movement activists. Party in the Street moves us forward methodologically, substantively, theoretically and empirically, and will interest those concerned with political parties, elections, social movements, and the struggle to end the War in Iraq. A tour de force."
Frank R. Baumgartner, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

"Heaney and Rojas have written a masterful work on the fraught relationship between political parties and social movements. In a theoretically innovative and empirically rich account, they show how individuals' partisan loyalties "aggregate up", sometimes fueling collective action for policy change - and sometimes dooming it."
Kristin A. Goss, Duke University, North Carolina

"The blockbuster finding in Party in the Street is its careful documentation of the role of political partisanship in first filling the ranks of the anti-war movement in the early 2000s, then emptying it out again after partisan control of the presidency shifted in 2009. More broadly, the book provides a theoretically and empirically rich account of the interplay of movement mobilization and partisan political mobilization."
Pamela Oliver, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"The sheer volume of hypotheses tested and the many methods used to address Party in the Street's research questions are impressive. Heaney and Rojas expertly utilize interviews, participant observations, media and organizational materials, and surveys that allowed network and regression analyses to make the case that while people care about issues and their identification with social movements matter, so do their connections to traditional politics."
Lisa Leitz, Mobilization

"Heaney and Rojas have done an incalculable service to our understanding of the relationship between parties and movements."
American Journal of Sociology

Book Description

Party in the Street explores the interaction between political parties and social movements in the United States. It focuses on activism and protest in the United States by examining the collapse of the post-9/11 antiwar movement against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
