About the Authors
  • All forms of popular protest include a specific category of 'popular intellectual' who reflects social reality. This volume looks at the experiences of popular intellectuals in non-western societies, operating within social-movement networks that link local, regional, and international arenas, and connect to a global flow of ideas. Eight case studies on different societies in twentieth-century Asia, Africa, and Latin America highlight specific activist intellectuals and their role in collective action.

    • Social movements
    • Popular intellectuals
    • Examines Africa, Asia and Latin America, using insights from social-movement theory (among others)
