GENERAL READING LIST

The reading list begins with a general theoretical section. Further sections approximate to the tutorial topics and the movements considered. It is mainly designed to facilitate reading for the project essays. You should also note that the journals Mobilization. ISSN: 1086-671x and Social movement studies. ISSN: 1474-2837 (SMS is also available online) appear in the library. These journals are dedicated to the study of social movements. The online journal Sociology Compass ISSN: 1751-9020 also has a section dedicated to social movements. There is also the online journals Interface. ISSN: 1742-5689; 1742-5662:

http://www.interfacejournal.net/

and Contention: http://www.berghahnjournals.com/view/journals/contention/3/2/contention.3.issue-2.xml

If you want to buy a book for the module Nick Crossley's Making sense of social movements ISBN: 0335206026 (pbk) : No price; 0335206034 (Open University Press, 2002), Karl-Dieter Opp Theories of political protest and social movements : a multidisciplinary introduction, critique, and synthesis ISBN: 9780415483889 (hardback); 9780415483896 (pbk.) (Routledge, 2009) or Edwards, G Social movements and protest ISBN: 9780521145817 (Paperback) : No price; 9780521196369 (Hardback) : £55.00 (Cambridge University Press, 2014) are best for the theoretical issues. Rugiero, V. and Montagna, N. (eds) Social movements : a reader ISBN: 9780415445825 (pbk. : alk. paper); 9780415445818 (cloth : alk. paper) (Routledge, 2008) is another good one to buy as it provides at least one reading for all but two of the tutorial topics. Paul Byrne’s Social movements in Britain ISBN: 0415071232 (pbk); 0415071224 (Routledge, 1997) is also useful. It provides you with an introduction to the main theoretical issues, and has chapters on feminism, environmentalism and the peace movement, but is now rather dated. However, these are not a substitute for reading the main theoretical contributions and empirical studies of social movements.
