Strategies for Social Change

The theory and practice of social movements come together in strategy - whether, why, and how people can realize their vision of another world by acting together. Strategies for Social Change offers a concise definition of strategy and a framework for differentiating among strategies. Specific chapters address microlevel decision-making processes and creativity, coalition building in Northern Ireland, nonviolent approaches to challenging repressive regimes, identity politics, LGBT rights, the Christian right in Canada and the United States, land struggles in Brazil and India, movement media publicity and corporate social movement organizations.
