(p.1) Introduction: Thinking Hearts
The Emotions of Protest

James M. Jasper

University of Chicago Press

We can’t begin to understand action or meaning without grasping the emotions that give them life. But they come in diverse forms, ranging from short-run reflexes to long-term commitments to groups and to moral ideals. Once we distinguish these types we can see how they interact with each other: how background emotions shape our immediate reactions, and how those quick reactions can be built into ideologies and moral programs.
