Summary "The analysis in this book yields answers to the question of what it takes to build a movement in the 21st century not only in the specific context of climate change and environmentalism but also more generally for other social movements and campaigns of any topic. This edited volume is the culmination of a national research project on the Step It Up campaign that examines the strategic aspects of constructing social movements and campaigns. Chapter authors attended seventeen local SIU actions in eight states. Using participant observation, interviewing, and rhetorical analysis, the chapters in this volume contribute to our understanding of rhetorical framing, modes of organizing, and practices of citizenship for contemporary social movements. This unique approach to studying a campaign as it happened yields important insights for both scholars and social movement practitioners."--Provided by publisher
