    schema:reviewBody ""The author looks at anti-apartheid as part of the history of present global politics. He provides the first comparative analysis of different sections of the transnational anti-apartheid movement. A highly organized system of repression such as apartheid demanded organized resistance: from the late 1950s to the 1990s the anti-apartheid movement performed increasingly well-organized transnational collective action, based on a collective identity, an imagined community of solidarity activists, uniting people across large distances. Analysing a part of twentieth century post-war history mainly from a sociological perspective, this book also highlights dimensions of globalization in an era in which we still live, the power of the media and the power of collective action."--Jacket." ;
