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. This book examines three of the most significant global social movements of the last decade: anti-globalization, new Islamic movements, and the Falun Gong in China. It also explores key dimensions of these movements, the tensions they confront, and the crises that created them. The book demonstrates how these global movements require a rethinking of the very idea of social movements.
