Civil societies and social movements; domestic, transnational, global.

Ed. by Ronnie D. Lipschutz.

The 20 papers presented by Lipschutz (U. of California at Santa Cruz) give a broad overview of the social science literature on social movements, civil society, and transnationalism. While "[s]ome of the [previously published] pieces that appear herein are seminal; others are not" and Lipschutz has chosen them to illustrate not just the debates and analyses of "popular political action" but also some of the politics behind those debates and analyses. The papers are presented in five sections addressing states, social forces, and the new transnationalism; social movements; civil society; case studies; and theoretical critiques and questions.
