Over the past decade we have witnessed the extraordinary rise of new global movements that throw into question the way we think about culture, power and action in a globalizing world.

  • Examines three of the most significant global social movements of the last decade: anti-globalization, new Islamic movements, and the Falun Gong in China.
  • Explores key dimensions of these movements, the tensions they confront, and the crises that created them.
  • Demonstrates how these global movements require a rethinking of the very idea of social movements
