Based on over twenty-five years of grassroots research, Theorising Social Movements combines the first full synopsis of social movement theory with a fully integrated account of social movement activity throughout Latin America.
The author reveals how social movements change individual and community life in Latin America and assesses their political impact on government policies, citizenship rights and the achievement of democratic rule. Including a specific focus on women's mobilisation, this is a cogent, wide-ranging review of social struggle in Latin America.
