Greg Martin leads the reader ably from the origins of social-movement scholarship in crowd theory, right through to the most interesting concerns today: globalization, the media, the geography of protest, emotions, narratives, and more. His integration of religious movements into how we study other social movements is especially welcome. Jasper, teaches sociology at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York This book is packed with interesting examples, from the role of black churches in the US civil rights movement, to Pussy Riot - from the Zapatistas to the Comfort Women that really bring concepts and theories to life. It is clearly written and will really help students understand what is at stake in social movement studies, dealing as it does, not just with well-developed themes such as resource mobilisation and culture, but also new topics including emotions, media and space. It starts with the foundations and takes us through the prospects for meaningful change in the future. The book is an asset for students and a challenge for citizens.
