Radical Protest
All activists must begin from a place of uncertainty: they must agitate for change without knowing their chances for success or what price they might pay for their efforts. Thus, any comprehensive account of activism must be able to explain how it moves beyond the initial challenge of this unknown. Radical Protest blends social movement research and social theoretical debates with a powerful critique of currently dominant theoretical approaches to identify the social mechanisms that enable activist movements.
