"This work is most significant as an application of the world-systems perspective to a broad, historical analysis of global social change and popular mobilization. A timely and important book by noteworthy authors."

"A timely and engaging discussion that introduces very interesting examples of social movements while also making an original, plausible, and empirically well-supported case for how transnational social movement strategies may well contribute to global change in ways that stem the threats posed by globalization. This innovative book addresses the shortcomings of other literatures on transnational social movements."

"This highly original book makes a substantial contribution to the field. The authors succeed in synthesizing two very large and prominent bodies of social science research, demonstrating how the periodic rise and fall of social movements follow political-economic developments in world empires and systems. The scholarship is more than sound; it is masterful. The clarity of the writing, along with the treatment of contemporary examples, will make this a widely required text. I recommend it in the strongest possible terms."
