About the Author

David S. Meyer is Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine


"With characteristic eloquence and humor, realism and optimism, David Meyer has given us a new book about the success (sometimes) of social movements, both in America and abroad. Readers will appreciate Meyer's talent for synthesis, presenting complex arguments with clarity, and unearthing the deeper meanings behind familiar tropes. In a world that has become ever more protest-prone, Meyer's book will take its place alongside classics like Tilly's From Mobilization to Revolution and Gamson's Strategy of Social Protest."
Sidney Tarrow, author of Power in Movement

"David Meyer draws on expertise accumulated through a career studying and analyzing social movements to take the reader through the lifecycle of a social movement to understand how social movements sometimes lead to protest in the streets, revolution, political change, and all sorts of social and cultural outcomes."
Dana R. Fisher, University of Maryland
