The art of moral protest : culture, biography, and creativity in social movements by James M Jasper( )

31 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 2,570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Art of Moral Protest, James Jasper integrates diverse examples of protest - from nineteenth-century boycotts to recent antinuclear, animal-rights, and environmental movements - into a distinctive new understanding of how social movements operate. Jasper highlights their creativity, not only in forging new morals but in adopting courses of action and inventing organizational forms. The work examines the role of individuals, both as lone protesters and as key decision-makers, and it emphasizes the open-ended nature of strategic choices as protesters, their opponents, their allies, and the government respond to each other's actions

Nuclear politics : energy and the state in the United States, Sweden, and France by James M Jasper( )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 1,260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why did nuclear energy policies in France, Sweden, and the United States, very similar at the time of the oil crisis of 1973 and 1974, diverge so greatly in the following years? In answering this question, James Jasper challenges one of the most popular trends in political analysis: explanations relying exclusively on political and economic structures to account for public policies. Jasper proposes a new cultural and state-centered approach--one heeding not only structural factors but cultural meanings, individual biographies, and elite discretion. Surveying the period from the successful commercialization of light-water-reactor technology in the early 1960s to the present, he explains the events that occurred after 1973: France built even more reactors than it needed, the United States canceled most reactor orders, and Sweden completed planned nuclear plants but decided to phase out nuclear energy by 2010.This work is based on one hundred interviews with managers, policymakers, and activists in the three countries. In addition to providing a unique theoretical perspective, it broadens our understanding of nuclear policy by looking at three countries in depth and over a long historical span.Originally published in 1990.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Players and arenas : the interactive dynamics of protest by Jan Willem Duyvendak( )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Players and Arenas brings together a diverse group of experts to examine the interactions between political protestors and the many strategic players they encounter, such as cultural institutions, religious organizations, and the mass media as well as potential allies, competitors, recruits, and funders. Discussing protestors and players as they interact within the arenas of specific social contexts, the essays show that the main constraints on what protestors can accomplish come not from social and political structures, but from other players with different goals and interests. Through a careful treatment of these situations, this volume offers a new way to approach the role of social protest in national and international politics. --
Rethinking social movements : structure, meaning, and emotion by Jeff Goodwin( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This landmark volume brings together some of the titans of social movement theory in a grand reassessment of its status. For some time, the field has been divided between a dominant structural approach and a cultural or constructivist tradition. The gaps and misunderstandings between the two sides-as well as the efforts to bridge them-closely parallel those in the social sciences at large. This book aims to further the dialogue between these two distinct approaches to social movements and to show the broader implications for social science as a whole as it struggles with issues including cult
The social movements reader : cases and concepts by Jeff Goodwin( Book )

37 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Social Movements Reader is an extensive collection of the key classic and contemporary readings on the origins, organization, dynamics, and effects of social movements. These essays analyze the specific resources, networks, structures, and environments of social movements, as well as the motivating psychology, political debates, emotions, and personal and collective identities behind them. The book includes several case studies of some of the most important social movements, including the civil rights, women's, and environmental movements." "Chapter introductions, brief biographers, and definitions of key concepts guide readers to a clear understanding of the essays. For anyone curious about social movements, this is an engaging and illuminating compilation."--Jacket
Contention in context : political opportunities and the emergence of protest by James M Jasper( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite extensive theoretical debates over the utility of "political opportunities" as an explanation for the rise and success of social movements, there have been surprisingly few serious empirical tests. Contention in Context provides the most extensive effort to date to test the model, analyzing a range of important cases of revolutions and protest movements to identify the role of political opportunities in the rise of political contention. With evidence from more than fifty cases, this book explores the role of the state in protest, the frequent overemphasis on political opportunities in r
Passionate politics : emotions and social movements by Francesca Polletta( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Protest : a cultural introduction to social movements by James M Jasper( Book )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every day around the world there are dozens of protests both large and small. Most groups engage the local police, some get media attention, and a few are successful. Who are these people? What do they want? What do they do to get it? What effects do they ultimately have on our world? In this lively and compelling book, James Jasper, an international expert on the cultural and emotional dimensions of social movements, shows that we cannot answer these questions until we bring culture squarely into the frame."--The back cover
The identity dilemma : social movements and collective identity by Aidan McGarry( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Collective identities are politically necessary, or at least useful, as banners for recruiting others and engaging opponents and the state. However, not every member fits or accepts the label in the same way or to the same degree. The Identity Dilemma provides eight diverse case studies of social movements to show the benefits, risks, and tradeoffs when a group develops a strong sense of collective identity. The editors and contributors to this pathbreaking volume examine how collective identities can provide powerful advantages but also generate conflicts. The various chapters help to develop our understanding of collective identity from how strategic identities are developed for protest groups to how stigmatized groups negotiate identity dilemmas. Ultimately, The Identity Dilemma contributes a new strategic approach to understanding social movements that highlights the choices and tensions that groups inevitably face in articulating their ideas and interests. Contributors include: Marian Barnes, Cristina Flesher Fominaya, Umut Korkut, Elzbieta Korolczuk, John Nagle, Clare Saunders, Neil Stammers, Marisa Tramontano, Huub Van Baar, and the editors. "--
Microfoundations of the Arab uprisings : mapping interactions between regimes and protesters by Frédéric Volpi( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together a roster of prominent contributors to present a strategic interactionist perspective on the study of contentious politics in the Middle East in response to the Arab uprisings. The common thread among the contributions is an interest in the micro-level interactions between various strategic players, including not only the mobilisation of protestors during the uprisings but also the responses of regimes. The book also examines short to medium-term adaptations of the regimes and the collective action of opponents in the post-uprisings period, as well as the subsequent trajectories of the protesters themselves in the face of new forms of authoritarianism or democratisation
The emotions of protest by James M Jasper( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Donald Trump’s America, protesting has roared back into fashion. The Women’s March, held the day after Trump’s inauguration, may have been the largest in American history, and resonated around the world. Between Trump’s tweets and the march’s popularity, it is clear that displays of anger dominate American politics once again. There is an extensive body of research on protest, but the focus has mostly been on the calculating brain - a byproduct of structuralism and cognitive studies - and less on the feeling brain. James M. Jasper’s work changes that, as he pushes the boundaries of our present understanding of the social world. In The Emotions of Protest, Jasper lays out his argument, showing that it is impossible to separate cognition and emotion. At a minimum, he says, we cannot understand the Tea Party or Occupy Wall Street or pro- and anti-Trump rallies without first studying the fears and anger, moral outrage, and patterns of hate and love that their members feel. --
