Edited by Patrick G. Coy



295 pages



Research in Social Movements, Conflicts and Change; Volume 38


Citing myriad ways social movements can be defined, Coy divides his book into three sections. The first considers a difficult set of problems associated with intra-movement dynamics. The second looks at religiously motivated activism and atheist-motivated activism. The third section investigates movement policy success in democratic states and the dynamics of abeyance for movements in non-democracies. Nine chapters are: transnational nationalism; transnational field and frames; waves of contention; a quantitative reevaluation of radical flank effects within nonviolent campaigns; ono shaming this sluto; home is where activism thrives; humor, collective identity, and framing in the new atheist movement; how social movements matter; social movements in abeyance in non-democracies.
