Reviews

"A valuable and timely contribution. The authors and editors of this terrific volume provide the tools for figuring out how culture matters to movements with a useful conceptual framework and case studies chock-full of theoretical insights." - Francesca Polletta, University of California, Irvine, US

"In line with the more general cultural turn in the social sciences, this state-of-the-art collection of essays and analyses provides stimulating ideas and insights into theoretical, methodological, and empirical aspects of culture in social movements. It is a must for both curious newcomers and experienced scholars working in this field." - Dieter Rucht, Free University Berlin and WZB Berlin Social Science Center, Germany
