Today, the study of social movements is solidly established, with specialized journals, book series, and professional associations. 9 Social Movements and Democracy. The excitement and opti-mism of the roaring 1960s may be long gone, but social and political events over the last four decades have hardly rendered the investigation of grassroots activism any less relevant or urgent.

Although grass-roots social movements are an important force of social and political change, they quite often fail to achieve their lofty goals. Similarly, the inability of research to systematically explain the impact of such movements stands in sharp contrast to their emotional appeal.
