* Eyerman and Jamison see social movements through a social theory of knowledge that is both politically and historically informed.
* The book is unique as it includes analysis of the recent forms of protest in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union as well as the American civil rights movement.
* It makes a very topical and readable book which should have wide appeal.
'Readable and well documented. I would recommend Eyerman and Jamison's book to all scholars who are interested in social movements.' ANZJS
