About the Author

"A thoughtful, concise and engaging account that will serve as anadmirable introduction to the field." Choice " States & Social Movements is not only timely, butalso timeless, as it presents a blueprint of political protest thatis equally relevant for the 18th century Western states, as for theglobalised world of today." LondonSchool of Economics and Political Science blog "Globalization has not reduced the importance of the state forsocial movements as actors of a politics by other means. In thisclearly written and well-researched volume, Hank Johnston buildsupon the best scholarship on social movements, adding an innovativeperspective in particular on the dynamics of protest innon-democratic regimes and democratizing polities." Donatella Della Porta, European University Institute "Movements shape states, and states shape movements. HankJohnston adds depth and nuance to this insight by examining a widerange of state forms and political protest - includingrevolutionary movements and transnational activism. Along the way,he provides a lucid overview of different theoretical perspectiveson movements. The result is an excellent short introduction tosocial movement studies." Jeff Goodwin, New York University "This book is an outstanding synthesis of a diverse anddifficult body of work. It is unique among surveys of socialmovements in balancing coverage of protests in both democratic andauthoritarian societies, in its even-handed treatment of therelations between globalization and protest, and in givingsubstantial and well thought out space to revolutions." Jack A. Goldstone, George Mason University
