Bourdieu and Social Movements is part of a burgeoning literature that employs Pierre Bourdieu‘s theoretical technologies for understanding and explaining the complex dynamics of social movements. This book uses Bourdieu’s key concepts to understand activists political history, ideological competition and conflict between movements, the success and failure of political mobilizations , and how crises create opportunities for social movement emergence. Drawing on rich ethnography, Ibrahim details the key stages of development of, and ideological competition and conflict between, 21st century British anti-capitalist organizations, and their interactions with wider social and political forces, and demonstrates how a new perspective is needed beyond established social movement theories in order to understand inter-movement conflict.
