Review quote

Scholarly analyses of globalization and its consequences on politics, including contentious politics, still deal mostly with Europe or the United States. This book helps redress the balance by focusing on a country largely overlooked by students of social movements and collective action. Through a careful analysis of five global civil society movements in the Philippines, Localizing and Transnationalizing Contentious Politics brings fresh insights into the ways in which local and transnational forces contribute to transforming the patterns of contentious politics. All those who are interested in this topic and country should read this book. -- Marco Giugni, University of Genevashow more
