From Mobilization to Revolution thoroughly examines the ways people act together in pursuit of common interests. Throughout, the book present and applies various political process models for the analysis of collective action. Historical and contemporary experiences from around the world illustrate the recurrent theme of the interplay between big structural changes - state-making, expansion of capitalism, urbanization, industrialization, and electoral politics - and the collective action of ordinary people, from demonstrations and brawls to strikes and revolutions. Dr Tilly compares the competing intellectual traditions of Marx, Weber, Durkheim, and Mill, and frequently clarifies the discussion with schematic diagrams of the arguments. In addition, he offers practical guidelines for new research and advanced study aimed at senior and graduate students of political sociology, social movements, collective behavior, and political developments.
