This expanded second edition of Tilly's widely acclaimed 2004 book brings this analytical history of social movements fully up to date. Tilly and Wood cover such recent topics as immigrants' rights, new media technologies, anti-Olympic organizing in China, new mobilizations against the Iraq War, and the role of bloggers and Facebook in social movement activities. Coverage of these and other recent events serve to expand further the book's seminal theorizing and conceptualization of how social movements grew from eighteenth-century Europe to eventually fuel popular movements all over the world.

Charles Tilly was Joseph L. Buttenwieser Professor of Social Science at Columbia University, and author of fifty earlier books. Just before his death, he was honored with the Social Science Research Council's prestigious Albert O. Hirschman Prize. A founding friend of Paradigm, Tilly is author of several other Paradigm books including most recently, Explaining Social Processes.
Lesley J. Wood is Assistant Professor of Sociology at York University. Her work on globalization and social movements has been published as book chapters and in the journals Mobilization and the Journal of World Systems Research. She is currently working on a monograph about diffusion and direct action tactics.
“Tilly is able to view history from an exceptional height in this short, highly readable book without losing attention to historical complexities. This book presents the lifelong thinking of a leading scholar and sets important research agendas for students of social movements in the twenty-first century. Essential for all collections.”
“Takes its readers on a tour of modern world history to show that within less than two and a half centuries a distinct political form arrived?the social movement. ... Tilly’s recognition of changing political environments for movements is a step forward to looking at how this institutionalized political form actually hinges on the state–society relationship in contemporary societies.”
