This book of readings is designed as a supplement to a general social change or specific social movement text. It is thus intended as an important first contribution to bridging the intradis­ciplinary gap in sociology. The 14 pre­viously published and original contri­butions brought together here are grouped under 4 main divisions: (1) the impact of change upon movements, (2) movement strategies for change, (3) the effects of movements on change, and (4) the consequences of effecting change. The editor has contributed an extensive introduction on the interrela­tionships of change and a concluding chapter summarizing directions for the future. By providing a broad range of movements and a number of different social contexts he has provided a highly stimulating selection of readings.
