About this book

The first academic account of the 21st century anti-war and peace movement. Empirically rich and conceptually innovative, Anti-War Activism pays especially close attention to the changed information environment of protest, the complex alliances of activists, the diversity of participants, as well as campaigners' use of new (and old) media.

Reviews

"Very impressive ... a clearly presented and well thought out study... All social movement scholars will find something of relevance and interest to them in this book."

- Nick Crossley, Social Movement Studies.

"There are many of us who want to ensure that the British people never again allow a British Prime Minister to get away with what Tony Blair got away with. This book shows what some of us did wrong."

- John Sloboda, Times Higher Education.

"The authors ... skilfully combine different methods in their research ... written using easily understood language and supplied with attention-grabbing factual material."

- Volodymyr Lysenko, Information, Communication & Society.
