Contention: the multidisciplinary journal of social protest

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Contention : the multidisciplinary journal of social protest.

From the publisher website for the journal:

Contention is dedicated to research on and about social protest and political behavior. The journal advances essential knowledge of a comprehensive range of collective actions, social movements, and other forms of political and social contention. By providing a multidiscipinary forum to scholars within and across the social sciences and humanities, it seeks to promote scholarly exchange and knowledge sharing among them.

While recognizing the importance of the contribution that the increasing specialization of knowledge has brought to the understanding of political behavior and collective action, Contention aims to reconstruct the fragmentation of the scientific discourse by offering in each issue a coherent but diversified range of articles from different theoretical, methodological, and philosophical approaches.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2013) to present.

Access Contention via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
