As the world experiences social unrest, polarization, and faces complex challenges, citizens are taking to the squares and streets to demand change. From climate change protests to far-right extremism, social movements are mobilizing around the key social and political issues of our times. In this extensively revised and updated book, the author offers a cutting-edge and original analysis to generate new insights into 21st Century social movements in a globalized world.

Written in clear and accessible language, this book will appeal to both students new to the field and established scholars. Drawing on a wealth of examples from around the world, from Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street to Wikileaks, the Tea Party, and the Zapatistas, it develops a compelling framework with which to understand the important role movements play in contemporary politics.

This expanded and revised second edition includes a comprehensive overview of social movement theory, a new chapter on “Movements on the Right”, a wider discussion of Information and Communication Technologies and Media - including new sections on “hacktivism” and “leaktivism” -and up-to-date case studies and references.

Conclusion.
The best study we have of globalization and movements for deep social change. No other book puts theory together with cases as well as this one. – John Foran, UC Santa Barbara, USA
In expanding and updating her excellent book, Flesher Fominaya manages quite a feat: to guide us through theories of social movements but also to tell us about the most important movements in today's fractured world. – James M. Jasper, The Graduate Centre, CUNY, USA
I strongly recommend this book as a first port of call for the study of social movements…it draws on an impressively diverse range of perspectives to provide fresh insights into recent and contemporary social movements. A ‘must have’ for students around the world. – Clare Saunders, University of Exeter, UK
