About this book

The growing interdependence on a global scale which characterizes the human condition at the turn of the century constitutes a challenge for both the mobilization of social movements and social movement theory. The present volume makes an attempt to adjust the perspective of the political process approach to a world in which political opportunities, mobilizing structures, framing processes and collective action of social movements are no longer confined to national political contexts.

Reviews

'A classic work in the field. In many ways, the field starts here.' - Lance Bennett, Director, Centre for Communication& Civic Engagement, University of Washington, Seattle, USA

'This book was a pioneer in developing transnational activism as a new research agenda. It is now a classic. At its 10th anniversary it continues to be a rich and indispensable source of inspiration for scholars and students in the field.' - Thomas Olesen, Department of Political Science, University of Aarhus, Denmark

'This invaluable collection of groundbreaking scholarship illustrates the vital and diverse roles social movements and NGOs have come to play in today's world. The volume's insightful contributions by leading academics in the field represent an extraordinary sample of theoretical and thematic approaches to the topic that has been widely influential for researchers from numerous disciplines ever since its first publication. This book should be on the required reading list of scholars, students and activists alike.'
