Alberto Melucci brings an original perspective to research on collective action, emphasizing the role of culture and making telling connections with the experience of the individual in postmodern society. The focus is on the role of information in a world both fragmented and globalized, and topics addressed include political conflict, feminism, ecology, identity politics, power and inequality. The book builds on the author's Nomads of the Present (1989), and is a companion volume to The Playing Self (CUP, 1996).

Book Description:

Emphasizing the role of culture and making telling connections with the experience of the individual in postmodern society, this study's focus is on the role of information in a world both fragmented and globalized. The book builds on Nomads of the Present (1989), and is a companion volume to The Playing Self (CUP, 1996).

From the Back Cover:

In Challenging Codes, Alberto Melucci provides a magisterial presentation of his distinctive approach to the study of contemporary social movements. At once appreciative and critical of prior work, Melucci argues for a hermeneutical approach to collective action that places identity and meaning at centre stage. The approach is used to illuminate the contemporary heterogeneity and transformation of contemporary movement.' --Mayer Zald, University Of Michigan
