Book Description:

Globalization has spurred people to mobilize to protect their lands, cultural identities, and autonomy. Simultaneous communications advances have increased awareness of human rights violations and inequities in the global distribution of resources. Social Movements: An Anthropological Reader expands on standard studies of social movements by offering a collection of writings that is exclusively anthropological in nature and global in its focus - thereby serving as an invaluable tool for instructors and students alike. The chapters are based on fieldwork carried out on four continents - North America, South America, Africa, and Asia - and in fourteen countries. These chapters address: problems of global health and the spread of diseases; loss of control over basic resources such as water and fuel; militarization; and repression of indigenous peoples and of women. The authors offer solutions that have been formulated by local peoples themselves; these innovative responses provide a context for reform from below rather than directed by preconceived notions from above.

June Nash is Distinguished Professor Emerita at the City University of New York. She is the author or editor of over 20 books, including Mayan Visions: The Quest for Autonomy in an Age of Globalization (2001) and Women and Change in Latin America (co-edited with Helen Safa, 1986).
