Protest movements have been analyzed widely within several disciplines in recent decades, but the larger repercussions they caused in social institutions and international affairs have largely been neglected. This volume fills this gap by examining the many ways in which political parties, the business world, foreign policymakers, and the intelligence community experienced, confronted, and even actively contributed to domestic and transnational forms of dissent.

Editorial Reviews

'This volume is unique in its sociological, global, and historical approach to the study of social movements. Its systematic effort at analyzing social movements in their widest social and political contexts addresses a real gap in the current literature. Insisting on a cross-disciplinary theoretical lens the volume offers novel insights and opens up new avenues for research on political protest.' - Thomas Olesen, Aarhus University, editor of Power and Transnational Activism 'A very useful contribution to the literature on protest movements.' - Gerd-Rainer Horn, University of Warwick, author of The Spirit of '68: Rebellion in Western Europe and North America, 1956-1976 'This is a cohesive volume with a clear overarching theme. It is highly original in its overall aims and in the delivery in individual chapters. There are other edited volumes in existence which deal either wholly or in part with protest movements, but none of these previous volumes really look directly at establishment responses, so this book fills a real gap in general, and individual chapters make important contributions to particular fields such as civil rights or terrorism.' - Nick Thomas, Department of History, University of Nottingham
