The "Politics of Protest" is designed for the uninformed, yet interested, graduate. It presents a brief history of social movements in the United states from the development of the American Republic, moves onto an introduction of the social impulse to protest, considers the strategies and tactics of social movements, looks at the institutional response to protest, and finally considers the policy ramifications. The book will include a brief narrative in each chapter from Meyer, outlining a key movement that illustrates the topic in the chapter.

David S. Meyer is Professor of Sociology, Political Science, and Planning, Policy, and Design at the University of California, Irvine.
"This is an accessible but thorough treatment of social movements presented in an engaging format. The coverage is broad yet thorough without becoming shallow. Meyer does an effective job of telling stories in an interesting manner and then integrating these stories with engaging theoretical discussion."--Steve Garrison, Midwestern State University
