PSM Series Leaflet - Amsterdam University Press

Social and Political Sciences
Recent years have seen an explosion of protest
movements around the world, and academic
theories are racing to catch up with them. This
series aims to further our understanding of the
origins, dealings, decisions, and outcomes of social
movements by fostering dialogue among many
traditions of thought, across European nations and
across continents.
All theoretical perspectives are welcome. Books in
the series typically combine theory with empirical
research, dealing with various types of mobilization,
from neighbourhood groups to revolutions. We
especially welcome work that synthesizes or
compares different approaches to social
movements, such as cultural and structural
traditions, micro- and macro-social, economic and
ideal, or qualitative and quantitative. Books in the
series will be published in English. One goal is to
encourage non-native speakers to introduce their
work to Anglophone audiences. Another is to
maximize accessibility: all books will be available in
open access within a year after printed publication.
