This is an overview of the development of social movements based on current research on movement mobilization and participation. It is an ideal guide to the field for upper-level students studying the development of movement participation in social psychology, sociology or politics. The discussion is illuminated by extensive international examples ranging from women's movements, to right wing extremist groups, to social movements in South Africa.
The Social Psychology of Protest addresses the classic problems that have been studied in the field: construction and reconstruction of collective beliefs, the transformation of discontent into collective action, and sustained participation and disengagement. Although the emphasis is on the individual's role, the book also discusses how the dynamics of movement participation are influenced by movement characteristics, multiorganizational fields and political opportunities.

Bert Klandermans is Professor of Applied Social Psychology at Free University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He has published extensively on the social psychological principles of participation in social movements and labor unions.Review :
"Bert Klandermans has written a fine scholarly book, which goes as far toward accommodating social psychology as one can go within the essentially structural root metaphor of an organizational paradigm." James M. Jasper, American Journal of Sociology
" (The Social Psychology of Protest ) provides a useful reference guide for both students and scholars. It offers a systematic, clear and well-structured account of concepts, empirical findings and theoretical approaches regarding social movements and collective action. Furthermore, it covers a wide range of literature on this subject and links elegantly theory with empirical research."
"A valuable guide to the current state of the field. Klandermans both frames recent debates in the field in ways that will be useful for graduate students and poses questions that will be helpful to veteran movement scholars." William Hoynes, Vassar
