Social Movements and Political Power

Emerging Forms of Radicalism in the West

Carl Boggs


"Boggs' account is informative, insightful, and provocative. His enthusiasm for new social movements does not blind him to their shortcomings." Political Science Quarterly

"A provocative book, one that deserves a wide reading among those who wish to understand the new movements. His analysis is an important contribution to understanding the transitions we are going through." Journal of the American Planning Association

"Carl Boggs has written one of the most comprehensive, stimulating, and provocative books we have on the ‘new social movements’ today. It deserves the highest praise for the issues it raises, its clarity of thought, and its splendid style. This is ‘must’ reading on the subject." Murray Bookchin, Emeritus Professor, Ramapo College
