Moving Politics. Emotion and ACT UP's Fight Against AIDS

In this first book to analyse the emergence, development, and decline of the direct action AIDS movement ACT UP, Deborah B. Gould explores a factor that only recently has entered the sights of social movement scholars and is still largely ignored in the social sciences in general: emotion. An inquiry into the affective stimuli and blockages to political activism, Moving Politics provides an in-depth analysis of the emotional dimensions of contentious politics.
