Good intro to social movement theory.

Very dense, but interesting as well. A complete breakdown of the sociology of social movements, different theories, studies, et cetera, in as concise an explanation as can be done. But still heavy. Very.

Great reference guide on Social Movements--it's definitely one of the canonical anthologies for me.
