The Politics of Protest : Social Movements in America
The "Politics of Protest" is designed for the uninformed, yet interested, graduate. It presents a brief history of social movements in the United states from the development of the American Republic, moves onto an introduction of the social impulse to protest, considers the strategies and tactics of social movements, looks at the institutional response to protest, and finally considers the policy ramifications. The book will include a brief narrative in each chapter from Meyer, outlining a key movement that illustrates the topic in the chapter.
