Westerners invented social movements during the 18th century, but after that social movements became vehicles of popular politics across the world. By locating social movements in history, prize-winning social scientist Charles Tilly provides rich and often surprising insights into the origins of contemporary social movement practices, relations of social movements to democratization, and likely futures for social movements.
"Tilly is able to view history from an exceptional height in this short, highly readable book without losing attention to historical complexities. This book presents the lifelong thinking of a leading scholar, and sets important research agendas for students of social movements in the 21st century." --CHOICE
