9781442214194: Globalization and Social Movements: Islamism, Feminism, and the Global Justice Movement

This clear and concise book examines social movements and transnational networks in the context of globalization in all its forms—economic, political, cultural, and technological alike. Deftly combining nuanced theory with rich empirical examples, leading scholar Valentine M. Moghadam focuses especially on three transnational social movements—Islamism, feminism, and global justice. Now updated to explore the European anti-austerity protests, the Arab Spring, and Occupy Wall Street, the book considers the ways in which these socio-political protests were affected especially by the role of young people and social networking media. The book also includes a new chapter on the democratic nature of social movements, or the ways in which social movements contribute to democratization at both national and global levels. Defining globalization as a complex process in which the movement of capital, peoples, organizations, movements, and ideas takes on an increasingly international form, the author shows how growing physical and electronic mobility has helped to create dynamic global social movements.

Exploring the historical roots of Islamism, feminism, and global justice, the book also shows how these movements have been stimulated by relatively recent globalization processes. Moghadam examines similarities and differences among the three movements, along with internal differentiation within each. Her argument is informed by feminist, world-systems, world polity, and social movement theories in a seamlessly integrated framework that will be essential reading for all students of globalization.

About the Author:

Valentine M. Moghadam is director of international affairs and professor of sociology at Northeastern University, Boston.

Review:

Valentine Moghadam’s Globalization and Social Movements is far and away the best book on the subject available. Theoretically sophisticated and empirically rich, it provides students with an accessible and engaging analysis of the interconnections between globalization and social movements. The inclusion in the new edition of an up-to-date examination of the Arab Spring and the anti-austerity and Occupy movements, along with the chapters on Islamist movements, women’s movements, and the global justice movement, make this the perfect text for courses across the social sciences that focus on these topics. (Paul Christensen, Boston College)

A true tour de force. In a very well-researched and carefully documented overview covering several fields of inquiry, Valentine Moghadam enables us to understand how and why the past few years have become so turbulent as the Arab Spring erupted, followed by the Spanish Indignados and Occupy Wall Street. But at the same time, more conservative Islamist movements have spread in many parts of the Muslim world. Her work represents the forefront of academic research, yet at the same time is so clearly written it can easily be used as a text in an undergraduate class. This book will remain the gold standard and mandatory reading for understanding transnational social movements. (Lauren Langman, Loyola University of Chicago)

Moghadam provides great understanding regarding the most significant social movements shaping the world today and their connections to the dynamics of globalization. Her exploration and analysis of global feminist, Islamic, and justice movements are theoretically grounded and carefully researched, illustrating nicely not only the significance of these cases for the study of social movements but also their relevance for defining social change in the contemporary world. Her scholarship is model research in the study of social movements and comparative sociology, revealing how globalization and its outcomes contribute to but are also shaped by collective action. I highly recommend the book not only for courses in the areas of comparative social change, globalization, and social movements but also a wider audience seeking understanding of the most influential forces shaping modern society. (Stephen J. Scanlan, Ohio University)

This clear and concise book examines social movements and transnational networks in the context of globalization in all its forms—economic, political, cultural, and technological alike. Deftly combining nuanced theory with rich empirical examples, leading scholar Valentine M. Moghadam focuses especially on three transnational social movements—Islamism, feminism, and global justice. Now updated to account for the European anti-austerity protests, the Arab Spring, and Occupy Wall Street, the book considers how the protests especially were affected by the role of young people and social networking media. The book also includes a new chapter on the democratic nature of social movements, or the ways in which social movements contribute to democratization at both national and global levels. Moghadam’s analysis and powerful case studies will be essential reading for all students of globalization.
