In this book, two titans of social movement scholarship bring together the best current research on the nexus between the local and the global in translating the global justice movement into action at the grassroots, and vice versa. Using recent cases of transnational contention_from the European Social Forum in Florence to the Argentinean human rights movement and British environmentalists, from movement networks in Bristol and Glasgow to the Zapatistas_the original chapters by distinguished scholars presented in this volume adapt current social movement theory to what appears to be a new cycle of protest developing around the globe.

Sidney Tarrow is the Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Government and professor of sociology at Cornell University.

Review:

A very well concieved collection of articles on a still new and largely unexplored phenomenon, in spite of the fact that and increasing number of scholars have started to tackle it in recent years. Transnational Contention and Global Activism brings us a step further on the track set by them. (Mobilization)

Broach[es] with superb aplomb the highly complex issue of transnationalism, specifically among social movements which are already well-known for instituting chains of protest against a world system characterized by obstinate - and inequitable - neo-liberal globalisation...Present[s] top-notch scholarship: the essays, diverse as they are, cohere impeccably and synthesize inter-related themes with enviable precision...a treasure-trove for those seeking a more nuanced understanding of contemporary developments in the area of social movement research. (Political Studies Review)
