Collective Action and Political Transformations

The Entangled Experiences in Brazil, South Africa and Europe

First Edition

Aurea Mota and Peter Wagner

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Based on nuanced historical and comparative analyses of society and politics in three world regions: Latin America, Southern Africa and Europe
  • Participates innovatively in the debates in critical political theory about the need to rethink the political
  • Links analytical and normative elements to explain the political as the combination of collective autonomy, problem-oriented reflexivity and a capacity for transformation-oriented intervention
  • Firmly set within the debates in social theory and historicalDScomparative sociology about varieties of modernity and widens these debates by consciously adopting a world-historical perspective
