"It is likely that this book will be regarded as the most important piece of grand sociological theory in English of the past decade."—Mark Poster, University of California "This book will take its place alongside such major statements of sociological theory as those of Parsons and Habermas. Anyone interested int eh state of the social sciences today, the character of social theory or the relevance of philosophy to social theory will now find it essential to grapple with Giddens's bold and incisive book."—Richard Bernstein, Haverford College, USA "Anthony Giddens's new book is the fullest presentation yet of his theoretical views . . . . it has the lean, sparse, utterly serious, craftsmanlike qualities we have learned to expect from its author and which make it a real pleasure to read."—Dennis Wrong, Times Higher Education Supplement

Is there more social protest now than there was prior to the movement politics of the 1960s, and if so, does it result in a distinctly less civil society throughout the world? If everybody protests, what does protest mean in advanced industrial societies? This volume brings together scholars from Europe and the U.S., and from both political science and sociology, to consider the ways in which the social movement has changed as a political form and the ways in which it continues to change the societies in which it is prevalent.
