From First Edition:
CHOICE OUTSTANDING ACADEMIC TITLE
“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.”
