Scientific knowledge in controversy : the social dynamics of the fluoridation debate by Brian Martin( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confronting the experts by Brian Martin( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confronting the Experts brings together six personal case histories of challenges to establishment experts. The authors tell why they questioned conventional wisdom, what methods they used, how they dealt with the experts' response, and what lessons they learned. Because the book shows how powerful groups can get their way by gaining the support of intellectual authorities and also how these authorities can be challenged, it provides insights into the issues of power, dissent, and social change
Random selection in politics by Lyn Carson( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How might the entire citizenry of a country make the decisions that affect them? Carson and Martin provide the first accessible and comprehensive overview of random selection as a possible process for transforming our modern political systems. Building on the theoretical work of the likes of John Burnheim and Fred Emery and drawing on their own work with social action groups, they outline a set of methods that go beyond the mere tapping of community opinion to reveal not only preferences but a more active role in creating the community.''Random selection, as Carson and Martin show, has been used in community participation in short-term decision making and long-term planning. It can be a powerful tool in the development of local, federal, and international policy. An important and innovative look at government decision making, this will be of primary interest to scholars and researchers in political theory and electoral systems, as well as political activists and reformers
Justice ignited : the dynamics of backfire by Brian Martin( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through numerous detailed case studies, Justice Ignited presents the first comprehensive treatment of the dynamics of backfire. Understanding backfire - both promoting and inhibiting it - is vitally important for activists and anyone else who wants to be effective in the face of injustice."--Jacket
Nonviolence speaks : communicating against repression by Brian Martin( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book addresses the power of popular nonviolent action against repression, aggression, and oppression. A crucial aspect of effective nonviolent action is communication. Activists need to be able to contact each other and to mobilize support from other parts of the world. However, within the nonviolence literature, communication has been almost entirely neglected, while within the communication literature, nonviolent action is seldom mentioned. This is the first major study to focus on the joint dynamics of nonviolence and communication." "Three case studies are examined: the popular action that forced the resignation of Indonesian President Suharto in 1998, the successful people's resistance to the Soviet coup in 1991, and the successful internationally coordinated campaign against the Multilateral Agreement on Investment in 1998. In each case, special attention is given to the role of communication in the struggle."--Jacket

Traditional village life has all but disappeared. Community spirit is all but extinguished, and many of the old characters who championed it have gone to meet their maker. But here and there some survive, retaining clear memories of how life was when doors were never locked, when everyone mucked in together at harvest time and when neighbours were almost always real friends. Brian Martin has travelled throughout the British Isles to track down the stalwarts of traditional village life, giving these colourful characters the chance to tell their absorbing tales
