Readings on Social Movements

Origins, Dynamics, and Outcomes

Second Edition

Doug McAdam and David A. Snow

Now in a new edition, Readings on Social Movements: Origins, Dynamics, and Outcomes features the most salient research and articles available on social movements. It places a unique emphasis on the overall "success" of a movement, thereby teaching students various ways in which to contextualize critical material. The second edition includes eighteen new readings on social movements outside of the United States, as well as thirty-four brand-new selections. New topics include: the role of emotion, narrative, and "identity work" and "collective identity" in social movements; work at the intersection of the sociology of law and social movements; transnational movements; Islamic fundamentalism; and the "policing of protest".
