Review:

This is a brilliant, provocative book, crossing disciplinary boundaries. It makes a powerful case on a subject of considerable importance. Lawrence S. Wittner, author of The Struggle Against the Bomb
Never before have I seen the politics of negotiations and the politics of the street put together this well. It adds new perspective to a set of events that have been much-analyzed over the last ten to fifteen years. It does so ranging across both administrative politics and movement politics, and covering the dynamic of movement demand and political response in both Germany and the U.S. Thomas Rochon, author of Culture Moves: Ideas, Activism, and Changing Values"
