Strategic Alliances provides pioneering analysis of the circumstances 
leading to movement alliances. Contributors investigate coalition 
dynamics among social movements, including antiwar, environmental, and 
labor movements, as well as ethnic organizations and women’s groups. 
While many of the essays examine coalition formation in the United 
States, others consider coalitions in Britain, the former East Germany, 
East Asia, and Latin America.

California, Merced.

Holly J. McCammon is professor of sociology at Vanderbilt University.a.
