Democratic Organization for Social Change

Full Product Description

How is a local level democratic organization cultivated so that members, who were previously disenfranchised, are empowered to oppose an oppressive central authority and participate in a revolutionary reconstruction of society? Having spent many years researching this question, Johannes P Van Vugt applies a model of democratic organization for social change to his findings regarding the way literacy campaigns and Christian Base communities were organized in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Brazil. His study is valuable as an example of a scientific methodology for studying and cultivating democratic organization for social change, and as a clarification of the controversy over the role of specific campaigns and organizations. Van Vugt approaches his study from an interdisciplinary perspective using a methodolgy that is qualitative, historical, and comparative. He blends the cultural insights of ethnography with the structural understanding of how ideologies and organizations motivate and mobilize people.

Democratic Organization for Social Change by Johannes P.Van Vugt was published by ABC-CLIO in May 1991. The ISBN for Democratic Organization for Social Change is 9780897892452.
