About

Overview

From abolition and woman suffrage to civil rights, the minimum wage, and the campaigns for clean air and clean water, struggles to mobilize groups to improve society and promote justice are among the enduring themes of American history. Whether one is studying economics, labor, government, politics, current events, or global issues, it is impossible to understand the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries in the United States without understanding the role of social movements. This wide-ranging reference resource examines every significant social movement in American history, covering each movement's goals, tactics, and effects, as well as its successes and failures. The work also examines the interrelationships among different movements and how they shaped American politics, culture, and society. Written for readers at all levels—but geared directly to the high-school social studies curriculum—Encyclopedia of American Social Movements includes biographical portraits of the leaders and key figures of the nation's social movements, as well as a wide variety of original documents.
