Besprechung

language="eng">"The best book on the new movements for radical social change in the 21st century that I have read!" - John Foran, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA "An engaging and accessible account of key developments in current social movements' struggles against injustice, neoliberal globalization and political repression, drawn from a diverse series of sites, including Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and North America. It is a fine contribution to literature in the field." Kathie Muir, Senior Lecturer, School of Social Sciences, University of Adelaide, Australia "An important, original and much-needed analysis of contemporary social movements. Drawing on a wealth of research and written in an engaging style, it offers an excellent resource for scholars and lecturers alike." Celia Valiente, Associate Professor in Sociology and Politics, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid "An excellent text on the development, characteristics and changes within social movements at a time of globalization. Lively, readable and well-crafted, it offers concise definitions of key terms, vivid and well-analysed cases and informs new developments in the study of social movements." Lei Xie, Lecturer in Politics, University of Exeter, UK
