Abstract:

"In the half decade between 1787 and 1792, thanks to the work of the Abolition Committee in Britain, a vast change occurred in the way slavery and the slave trade were defined. Previously seen as necessary evils, they were seen after 1792 as gross injustices and evils that had to disappear. The present volume uses the abolition movement to show how social movements produce and change meanings and thus bring about cultural change."--BOOK JACKET. "D'Anjou's analytical strategy has two aspects. It distinguishes the social movement as whole from its component elements, and separates its organizational context from other historical developments, the historical context. In adopting this strategy, collective campaigns are studied as instances of contentious actions that depend on antecedent developments and of characteristics that are central in explaining the effect of those actions on the culture of a society."--BOOK JACKET. "Devising a tentative model from existing empirical research on social movements, the author tests that model against the results of his case study. The resulting conceptual model, as refined, may be used as an instrument in further research on movements and the construction of meaning. This evolved model is built around three notions: history, agency, and the collective campaign resulting in a public discourse. When, as happened in abolition, the views of the actors prevail in the public discourse, cultural change occurs."--Jacket.
