Can Social Movements Save American Democracy? A Review Article
ROBERT LIEBERMAN reviews Sidney Tarrow’s Movements and Parties. He argues that recent scholarship on the fragility of American democracy has generally focused on political elites rather than the mass public and that Tarrow’s book offers an essential corrective to this view. Lieberman notes that Tarrow shows how social movements have been central to historical patterns of democratization and democratic backsliding in American history and how movements have systematically interacted with political parties in ways that have profoundly shaped the American democratic experiment.
