Self, Identity, and Social Movements
Sheldon Stryker, Timothy J. Owens, and Robert W. White, Editors
A ground-breaking look at the social psychology of political movements.
Bridging psychology and sociology, this volume demonstrates the importance of self, identity, and self-esteem for analyzing and understanding social movements. The scholars gathered here provide a cohesive picture of how self and identity bear on social movement recruitment, activism, and maintenance. The result is a timely contribution to the social movements literature and to a greater understanding of the social and psychological forces at work within them.
