Politics of Protest, 2nd edition

I’m happy to announce that Oxford University Press has just published the second edition of The Politics of Protest: Social Movements in America.

It’s really a new book, including discussion of things I’ve learned in the last seven years and the range of events that have taken place over that time.  The new edition includes a fuller discussion of media, including social media, which eluded me the first time through.  There’s also a recognition of some of the signal movements of recent years, including the gay and lesbian movements’ successful campaigns for open service and same sex marriage, the struggle between anti-immigrant and immigrant rights movements, the Tea Party, and Occupy Wall Street.

I’m happy about it and ready to talk!  (I’m particularly eager to talk about the movie rights.)

    Congratulations! I look forward to reading it (and using it in class!).

    Best, Lindsey
