Social Movements and Global Social Change : The Rising Tide, Paperback / softback Book

Social Movements and Global Social Change : The Rising Tide Paperback / softback


Social Movements and Global Social Change teaches students not only about how social change occurs but also about how social movements can contribute to this change.

The book links two concepts in sociology that are often related in real life, but that can seem disconnected in traditional approaches to teaching these courses.

The book examines different types of social movements, including those often ignored in social change textbooks, such as riots, migration, and disorganized protest.

It also looks at citizens' rights and inequality in connection to social movements and change.

The book features global perspectives and examples throughout.
