View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Over the past 20 years protest movements have dramatically shaken the complacency of modern western society, posing new questions about the changing nature of power relations and placing new issues on the political agenda. While protest movements have demanded responses from those in power that have significantly transformed the ways in which our society is organised, they have also revealed the limits governing more fundamental changes. Despite encountering concerted political resistance, the Black movement, women's movement, gay and lesbian movements, peace movement and green movement have all left their political mark, overcoming serious obstacles to achieve their aims. Verity Burgmann provides a coherent survey of the political ideas and activities pursued by these movements and assesses their respective impacts on the wider society. She examines each movement sympathetically, but not uncritically, from a position supportive of their aspirations yet sceptical about some of their directions. "Power and Protest" is a valuable guide for students of politics, sociology and history, detailing the most important movements for social change in recent times, introducing the major debates amongst theorists of new social movements and querying the value of existing literature. Verity Burgmann has been a participant in several protest movements in Australia and overseas. She is the author of "In Our Time" and numerous articles on Australian history and politics.
