Rhyming Hope and History by David R. Croteau
Book DescriptionThis book confronts the gulf between social movement theory and activism. "Rhyming Hope and History" exposes the frayed relations between activism and social movement scholarship and examines the causes and consequences of this disconnect between theory and practice. Both scholars and activists explore solutions, weighing the promise and perils of engaged theory and the barriers to meaningful collaboration. This volume asserts that partnerships among scholars and activists benefit both academic inquiry and social change efforts.
