Social Movements Cognitive Approach by Ron Eyerman, Andrew Jamison

Social movements are now a popular subject of sociological investigation. This timely book offers a new approach to the study of such movements, integrating American and European approaches. The authors are particularly concerned with the processes which transform groups of individuals into social movements, and which give social movements their active orientation. They examine the success and failure of social movements in comparative terms, comparing different historical periods as well as political cultures.


a Eyerman and Jamison have written a pathbreaking book that simultaneously places previous theories of collective behaviour in sociohistorical perspective while developing their own cognitive approach to social movements.a Choice a Readable and well documented. I would recommend Eyerman and Jamisona s book to all scholars who are interested in social movements.a ANZJS
