As the world experiences social unrest, polarization, and faces complex challenges, citizens are taking to the squares and streets to demand change. From climate change protests to far-right extremism, social movements are mobilizing around the key social and political issues of our times. In this extensively revised and updated book, the author offers a cutting-edge and original analysis to generate new insights into 21st Century social movements in a globalized world.

Written in clear and accessible language, this book will appeal to both students new to the field and established scholars. Drawing on a wealth of examples from around the world, from Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street to Wikileaks, the Tea Party, and the Zapatistas, it develops a compelling framework with which to understand the important role movements play in contemporary politics.

This expanded and revised second edition includes a comprehensive overview of social movement theory, a new chapter on “Movements on the Right”, a wider discussion of Information and Communication Technologies and Media - including new sections on “hacktivism” and “leaktivism” -and up-to-date case studies and references.

The best book on the new movements for radical social change in the 21st century that I have read!' – John Foran, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

'Casts its net wide in examining how contemporary social movements are both shaped by and in turn themselves shape what we call globalization. It poses clearly the question of the challenges posed but also opportunities opened up for social movements under the present global order... A very readable survey of the global justice movement.' – Ronaldo Munck, Dublin City University
