Frames of Protest is the only book available that brings together empirical research and theoretical essays by sociologists, political scientists, and media specialists that focus on social movement frames and framing practices. The major themes of the framing perspective are treated: evidence for the determining influence of collective action frames, their role in protest cycles, framing practices by the state and media, their relationship to political structures, frames versus ideologies as mobilizing factors, and methods of framing research. The collection offers a state-of-the-art view of this important perspective.
