Social Movements by Vincenzo Ruggiero

Book Description

This timely Reader plays an important role in the field of social movements. It fills a significant gap by covering a number of connected areas within social studies. Responding to growing demand for interpretation and analysis of re-emerging social conflicts in the developed, as well as the developing world, this timely collection is the outcome of the recent boost received by social movement studies since the spread of contention and collective action at international level and the growth of the 'anti-globalization' movement. Intended not only as a comprehensive introduction for undergraduates and postgraduates studying social movements, this volume also provides a truly global perspective, combining classic sociological thought and contemporary concerns. This book provides an essential guide to 'who is who' in the field of social movement studies and includes reflective and documentary material on contemporary conflicts. This volume is also an incredibly valuable resource for more general modules on sociological theory, global sociology, the history of sociological thought, contemporary social theory, and international and globalization studies.

Corruption and Organized Crime in Europe by Vincenzo Ruggiero Corruption and Organized Crime in Europe, Paperback (January 2014)

Combining empirical data and theoretical discussions on the relationship between corruption and organised crime in all 27 EU member states, this book provides an analysis of the specific national contexts in which corruption and organised crime thrive.

Punishment in Europe by Vincenzo Ruggiero Punishment in Europe, Hardback (August 2013)

This collection, from a range of leading international scholars, looks at penal practice in a variety of different European countries. Noting particularities as well as similarities, such as the overuse of imprisonment and the use of harsher sanctions against the poor, this book questions how we justify and deliver punishment in Europe.
