How social movements matter

McAdam, Doug
Tilly, Charles
Publication Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1999
Abstract We have all witnessed social movements and felt their effects-some subtle, others profound. But to truly understand their impact over time, in different countries, and on various segments of society requires the kind of rare insight this book provides. Bringing together several well-known scholars, this volume offers an assessment of the consequences of social movements in Western countries. Policy, institutional, cultural, short- and long-term, and intended and unintended outcomes are among the types of consequences the authors consider in depth. They also compare political outcomes of several contemporary movements-specifically, twomen’s, peace, ecology, and extreme-right movements-in different countries.
