Book Review: Animal Rights Activism: A Moral–Sociological Perspective on Social Movements

Research output: Contribution to journalReview (Book/Film/Exhibition/etc.)

Abstract

In recent social movement studies a symbolic framework emphasizing rituals, symbols and master frames has contributed with important insights into the diverse communicative and socio-cultural aspects of contemporary social movements (Alexander, 2006; Benford and Snow, 2000; Jasper, 1997). With the publication of Animal Rights Activism: A Moral–Sociological Perspective on Social Movements a complementary perspective regarding the lifeworld of social movement activists has been added to this theoretical apparatus.
