The Social Movements Reader: Cases and Concepts Reviews

    کتاب از 12 مقاله تشکیل شده است. هرمقاله را فرد خاصی ترجمه کرده است. نکته جالب راجع به ترجمه و تهیه این کتاب آن است که این کتاب به کوشش سعید مدنی و ترجمه 8نفر صورت گرفته که تمام این افراد در زندان اوین بوده اند و از فعالین سیاسی-اجتماعی. ترجمه این کتاب نیز در طول مدت محکومیت و حبس این افراد صورت گرفته است.کتاب را میتوان یک کتاب آکادمیک دانست که شاید مناسب قشر وسیعی از افراد نباشد به این خاطر که عبارات و اصطلاحات مبهم زیاد دارد. برای من نیز این اتفاق افتاد که نمیدانم این را باید به حساب متن کتاب گذاشت یا ترجمه.ضعف و نقد دیگری که به این کتاب وارد است می‌تواند غیرملموس بودن آن برای ما ایرانیان باشد زیرا که به بررسی و تحلیل جنبش‌های اجتماعی کشورهای اروپایی و با تمرکز بر آمریکا پرداخته است که خب تفاوت‌های چشمگیری با جامعه ما دارد.شاید کاربردی‌ترین و مفیدترین مقالات آن را بتوان 3 الی 4تا دانست و همینطور 2مقاله آخر کتاب که به مفهموم دموکراتیزاسیون و دموکراتیزاسیون در آمریکای لاتین میپردازد.

    I liked this a lot. I am interested in social movements because I grew up in the 1960's and 1970's with parents who were involved in various social movements from the civil rights movement to the women's liberation movement to the gay rights movement and to the Vietnam War protest movement. This book has excerpts from many authors who interviewed people involved in those movements and more at the time they occurred and much research on what makes movements tick. There is even a section on cults and charismatic leaders. If you would like to better understand social movements, this is a great place to start.

    An excellent overview of the field, with dozens of short chapters on issues like the collective action problem, framing, etc.

    This is a good reader. The intro chapters introduce key concepts in a clear and straight-forward (though not always exciting) manner. The selection of readings is varied both theoretically and substantively. I will be using this reader for my spring Social Movements class and I plan to assign about 60% of the chapters.

    A good collection of essays on various aspects of social movements. Many of the essays are excerpts from books or longer papers, which is why I only give this 3 stars. I found myself wanting more with some of them, and feeling that some of them rambled on needlessly in sociological jargon without really getting to a good solid point. I would like to see an updated version with essays more relevant to today's social movements. All in all this was a valuable resource for an independent study I am doing on social movements.

    Especially if you want to connect emotions/ framing with movements.

    A perfect intro to understanding social movements. I'm from a computer engineering background, but it was not too difficult to read and understand.
