The Resource Context of Social Movements


The substantial recent research literature focused primarily upon the resource mobilization strand has until now remained relatively unexamined and unsynthesized. That the continuing relevance and usefulness of RM concepts and ideas are undiminished and the broader approach contains vital conceptual tools for analyzing the full spectrum of contemporary movements will become clear in the brief review of the recent research we present blow, one that emphasizes publications appearing since the beginning of 2004. Before turning to that review, however, we rearticulate what we described as the core ideas of the broader resource mobilization approach.
