About the Author

Charles Tilly, Columbia University, is one of the premier sociologists of our time. Among his 50 highly influential books are Contentious Politics (Paradigm 2006) and Trust and Rule (Cambridge University Press 2005). Lesley Wood is Associate Professor of Sociology at York University in Toronto, Canada. She is the author of Crisis and Control (Pluto, 2014), Direct Action, Deliberation and Diffusion (2012) and co-author of the third edition of Social Movements 1768-2012 (Pluto, 2012). She is an activist in the global justice and anti-poverty movements.


From First Edition:

"Tilly is able to view history from an exceptional height in this short, highly readable book without losing attention to historical complexities. This book presents the lifelong thinking of a leading scholar and sets important research agendas for students of social movements in the twenty-first century. Essential for all collections."

"Takes its readers on a tour of modern world history to show that within less than two and a half centuries a distinct political form arrived-the social movement. . . . Tilly's recognition of changing political environments for movements is a step forward to looking at how this institutionalized political form actually hinges on the state-society relationship in contemporary societies."
