Solidarity in Poland, anti-apartheid in South Africa, Operation Rescue in the United States--each of these movements is driven by the energy and sustained by the commitment of many individuals and organizations whose ideologies are shaped and powered by religious faith. In many cases, religious resources and motives serve as crucial variables explaining the emergence of entire social movements. This book analyzes contemporary social movements which are driven by people and organizations of faith. The essays also address many theoretical issues arising in the study of social movements and disruptive politics."@en
