"A comprehensive range of social movements is treated in 16 broad categories, from civil rights and women to antiwar protests and global justice. Timely entries on the Fair Trade Coffee campaign and the anti-sweatshop movement highlight current issues, while the section on antiwar movements covers everything from early Quaker pacifism to protests of the current U.S. intervention in Iraq. Students researching antebellum abolitionists, the history of gay-rights movements, or the development of conservative American politics will find useful and authoritative information."--"Reference that rocks," American Libraries, May 2005.
