Political Process and the Development of Black Insurgency, 1930-70 by Doug McAdam
Book DescriptionIn this sociological work, Doug McAdam presents a political-process model that explains the rise and decline of the black protest movement in the United States. Moving from theoretical concerns to empirical analysis, he focuses on the crucial role of three institutions that foster protest: black churches, black colleges and Southern chapters of the NAACP. He concludes that political opportunities, a heightened sense of political efficacy, and the development of these three institutions played a central role in shaping the civil rights movement. In his introduction, McAdam revisits the civil rights struggle in light of recent scholarship on social movement origins and collective action.
