The Emotions of Protest

James M. Jasper


Emotions permeate all aspects of protest, just as they do all human action. Most scholars acknowledge this, but have done little to incorporate feelings into their explanations. This book systematically shows how dozens of emotions help, hinder, direct, and generate social movements. They are not simply bad nor simply good; they are normal.

Keywords: feeling-thinking processes, emotions, protest, social movements
