Laurence Cox, (2018) Why Social Movements Matter: An Introduction

  • Kirsten Maclean


Why do social movements matter? Cox draws on his own extensive experience as an activist and academic to argue for the enduring importance of social movements in our lives. This accessible book urges us to build alliances across the particularisms of specific movements and learn from the 'struggles of others' to help us to 'keep stepping out' into the streets and, ultimately, to help us keep going.
