9780814750865: Social Movements: Critiques, Concepts, Case Studies (Main Trends of the Modern World)

Social movements have shown themselves to be one of the most dramatic and effective forms of political action. America, founded as the result of a challenge to one kind of political order, has been, in part, recreated as a result of movements of collective protest.

Social movements continue to arise in America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. In the present age, when such social movements abound, it is crucial to investigate the theoretical similarities and underpinnings of older and current collective protests. With chapters on AIDS, the Iranian revolution, the New Left, environmentalism, and many other subjects, as well as essays delineating classical and contemporary theories, Social Movements provides a well-rounded and provocative perspective on this most compelling form of political expression.

About the Author:

Standford M. Lyman is Robert J. Morrow Eminent Scholar and Professor of Social Science at Florida Atlantic University. He is the author and editor of numerous books, including The Seven Deadly Sins: Society and Evil; Civilization: Discontents, Malcontents, and Other Essays in Social Theory; and Militarism, Imperialism and Racial Accomodation: An Analysis and Interpretation of the Early Writings of Robert E. Park.

Review:

"Meticulously researched and engagingly written, Newark tells an important story. Portraying a city that functions as an archetype for Black Power in urban politics, Mumford writes with great sympathy for an earlier liberal integrationist tradition, periodizing and explaining its rise and fall carefully, eloquently, and persuasively."
-David Roediger, author of "Working toward Whiteness"

-,

&8220;Mumford explores the devastating effect of the riots and how the city police, state police, and National Guard escalated the violence. He raises the controversial possibility that female looters stripping store mannequins may have been making a social statement about economic inequality. He also discusses such divisive personalities as Anthony Imperiale of the Citizens Council, with his anti-black sentiments, and the poet Amiri Baraka, who melded black nationalism with anti-white and, occasionally, anti- Semitic rhetoric."
-"New Jersey Star Ledger",

"From the city's early days, where African-Americans fought for recognition and dignity, to their ascension to elected office in the midst of the Black Power movement, and then through countless though crucial fragments as new power brokers emerged amid old differences in vision, tactics and goals, Newark is spellbinding, and worth your attention.Newark-"Altreads.com",

"Excellent, lively, and learned. . . . An engaging and unsettling study of the city."
-"The Bloomsbury Review",
