The Language of Contention by Sidney Tarrow - - Dymocks
Words, words, words? Revolutions, protests, riots - more words? That master of contentious politics, Sid Tarrow, examines how language constructs empowers and unites and deconstructs disempowers and divides actors.
Using word counts and ethnography, his positivist constructivism connects words to actions as well as to historical structural contexts. Exploring cognitions, emotions, and meanings, Tarrow's rich analyses demonstrate how language endures through time and diffuses through populations via mechanisms of symbolic resonance and processes of strategic modularity.

Lichbach, University of Maryland show more. Review quote 'Classism, racism, sexism. Lichbach, University of Maryland 'Sid Tarrow's great genius is the capacity to see connections that others miss. He has done it for decades and does it again here, brilliantly showing us that the language of contentious politics is a tireless traveler across space and time. But as those who wander know well, the journey can change the voyager as much as the land where she alights.
And thanks to Professor Tarrow, we now understand how it all happens. Rodgers, Henry Charles Lea Professor, Emeritus, Princeton University 'In this engaging work, Sidney Tarrow, long a pre-eminent analyst of contentious politics, turns to contentious language - exploring shifting terminologies of race, class, gender, citizenship, and more, in many times and places.
He makes a compelling case that politics cannot be understood without grasping how, symbolically and strategically, words stigmatize, valorize, divide, unite, and inspire political actors and action. Smith, Christopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania, and author of Stories of Peoplehood: The Politics and Morals of Political Membership 'A dazzling contribution by a master of the study of contentious politics, The Language of Contention takes us on a journey from the seventeenth century to the present to demonstrate the power of contentious language in social and political change.
Drawing on an extraordinary range of revolutionary, nationalist, and ethnic movements as well as movements mobilized around gender, race, and sexuality, Tarrow adds an important cultural dimension to his concept of 'cycles of contention' by showing us that, indeed, words matter. Beyond its refreshing historical scope, Tarrow's framework may help to reconcile a paradigm split within social movement studies, where the long-dominant school takes an instrumentalist approach to organizational strategies and outcomes, while more recent challengers have argued that movements are more centrally about the spread of ideas and cultural change.
Lance Bennett, Perspectives on Politics 'This is an immensely rewarding book. Focusing on the inconsistent diffusion of rights and recognition for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people across European Union states, Phillip Ayoub draws on a wealth of evidence to demonstrate the important role of individual and collective visibility in provoking both recognition of but also resistance to justice and equality for LGBT people. His analyses lead to important and often surprising insights about the sources and consequences of both movement victories and setbacks, offering reasons for optimism at the same time as they deliver sobering reminders about continued persecution and barriers to justice.
Strolovitch, Princeton University 'There are many well-trained scholars of social movements; many others who are experts on European transnational politics; and still others who specialize on the LGBT movement.

But there is no one who has encompassed all three more elegantly than Phillip Ayoub has done in this richly documented, carefully researched, and intellectually inspiring book. More than a consummate exercise in comparative research, and more than an in-depth inquiry into the LGBT movement in both parts of Europe, it is also a profoundly enlightening inquiry into the factors that produce cultural openness to diversity and those that inhibit it.

Hall, Choice 'More than just a sophisticated case study, When States Come Out is a resource for anyone seeking to promote human rights at the civil society and state levels. Peter J. Carpenter, Jr Professor of International Studies, Cornell University This brilliant study provides a compelling answer to the question of what drives policy success of LGBT movements in particular and of social movements more generally.
Robert Singh, Birkbeck, University of London When States Come Out sheds new light on long-standing questions about the conditions under which weak, marginalized, and stigmatized groups are able to bring about political and social change. Dara Z. Strolovitch, Princeton University There are many well-trained scholars of social movements; many others who are experts on European transnational politics; and still others who specialize on the LGBT movement.
