Making Sense of Social Movements

Nick Crossley (Author)
Synopsis Making Sense of Social Movements offers a clear and comprehensive overview of the key sociological approaches to the study of social movements. The author agues that each of these approaches makes an important contribution to our understanding of social movements but that none is adequate on its own. In response he argues for a new approach which draws together key insights within the solid foundations of Pierre Bourdieu's social theory of practice.

This new approach transcends the barriers which still often divide European and North American perspectives of social movements, and also those which divide recent approaches from the older' collective behaviour' approach. The result is theoretical framework which is uniquely equipped for the demands of modern social movement analysis.

The clear and concise style of the text, as well as its neat summaries of key concepts and approaches, will make this book invaluable for undergraduate courses. It will also be an essential reference for researchers.
