About the Author:

Stephen C. Poulson is Visiting Assistant Professor of Sociology and Anthropology at James Madison University.

Review:

Until recently, social movement theory and research focused almost entirely on Western movements. Social Movements in Twentieth-Century Iran shows how one set of movements 'worked' where the state, other structural elements, and culture differed dramatically from the West, even while Western ideas and meddling shaped them. Poulson's highly readable book is important for students of social movements and also for others who want to better understand this country that is so closely related to current global conflicts yet so crudely caricatured in our media. (Dale W. Wimberly, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University)

This book is a good review of the history of political protest, social movements, and political Islam in Iran, as well as a good overview of the literature on these subjects. Summing Up: Highly Recommended. All levels/libraries. (A. Mahdi, Ohio Wesleyan University CHOICE)

Social Movements in Twentieth-Century Iran chronicles the development, use, and modification of various master frames during cycles of protest from 1890 to the present. It is an insightful analysis of major social movements during this period, and particularly of the relevance of culture and framing processes and their intersection. A useful book for those interested in Iranian collective action and the analytic utility of contemporary social movement theorizing and perspectives. (David A. Snow, University of California, Irvine)
