Dissenting Voices and Transformative Actions: Social movements in a Globalizing World
Dissenting Voices and
Transformative Actions: Social
movements in a Globalizing World
By- Debal K. SinghaRoy (ed.)
This collection of essays
examines the emerging patterns of social movements taking shape all over the
world locally and also cutting across the geographical boundaries of the state
and the nation globally. It not only critically analyses the conceptual
underpinnings of the functional, symbolic interactional, Marxian, neo-Marxian,
political process-resource mobilization, new social movement-identity,
subaltern, Gandhian perspectives among others, but also delineates alternative
viewpoints of social movement analysis. It focuses on the nature and forms of
local resistance against global domination by pre-defined but rearticulated
social categories like caste, race, tribe, and ethnic groups, and the emerging
nature of the protest of women, farmers, students, and migrants in a changing
scenario citing social movements taking place in North and South America,
Eastern and Western Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia.
Both in terms of intensive
empiricism and theoretical depth it is a unique treasure of intellectual
contribution on social movement studies. This collection would be of immense
use to students, researchers, teachers of sociology, political science,
economics, history, social psychology and development studies, and also civil
society activists, planners, executives and politicians dealing with the issues
of social movement, conflicts, social developments, marginalization and social
