""From its opening discussion of protests in North Charleston, Sana'a (Yemen), Cape Town, and Madrid on April 10, 2015 to its analysis of the Women's March on January 22, 2017, Protest Politics Today is a compelling synthesis of theory and practice that will be taught in a wide range of social science courses. I look forward to using it in my own course, Contesting Injustice.""

""How do deeply invested participants come together in public displays of commitment and passion - in social movements? This is the subject of Devashree Gupta's riveting new book. The book ranges from how modern movements developed to the approaches scholars have used to study them, to how movements organize and strive to influence social and political change. Immensely readable and deeply informative, Protest Politics Today provides a succinct yet rich introduction to the field of social movements and contentious politics.""
