"This eight?volume encyclopedia is an indispensable referencetool for scholars, students, and activists seeking informationabout revolutionary social movements, left?politics, and radicalleaders. Immanuel Ness has put together a very impressive team ofinternational scholars, many of whom have defined their fields. Theresult is a comprehensive compilation that reflects the most recentscholarly interpretations. What distinguishes this encyclopedia isthe way it incorporates the social history literature of the pasttwo generations with its focus on protest movements, ordinaryworking people, and the how the struggle for social justice wasdefined by class, race, gender, and ethnicity. This encyclopediaprovides a window into the process of revolutionary social change,the relationships between leaders and rank and file, workers,peasants, and state power. Its transnational perspective clarifiesthe role that revolutionary nationalism and the struggles againstEuropean colonialism played in the world?wide movement for socialchange. This is the definitive reference work in its area."
