Sammanfattning (abstract):
[About the book:] This is an important historical period in which to develop communication models aimed at creating opportunities for citizens to find a voice for new experiences and social concerns. Such basic social problems as inequality, poverty, and discrimination pose a constant challenge to policies that serve the health and income needs of children, families, people with disabilities, and the elderly. Important changes both in individual values and civic life are occurring in the United States and in many other nations. Recent trends such as the globalization of commerce and consumer values, the speed and personalization of communication technologies, and an economic realignment of industrial and information-based economies are often regarded as negative. Yet there are many signs --from the WTO experience in Seattle to the rise of global activism aimed at making biotechnology accountable --that new forms of citizenship, politics, and public engagement are emerging.

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Activism and Social Justice presents a comprehensive overview of the field with topics of varying dimensions, breadth, and length. The Encyclopedia is designed for readers to understand the topics, concepts, and ideas which motivate and shape the fields of activism, civil engagement, and social justice as well as short biographies of the major thinkers and leaders who have influenced and continue to influence the study of activism.

This 3 volume encyclopedia will be multidisciplinary in appeal: education; communication studies; political science; leadership studies; social work; social welfare; environmental studies; health care; social psychology; sociology; etc.
