Contributors assess how three decades of action groups have affected advanced industrial nations. Emphasis is placed on groups and activities identified as new social movements in Europe and as new-left citizen action groups in the USA. Account is taken of the counter groups generated and the use of direct action and protest by a wide range of societal groups. The focus, however, is upon groups identified with the new political forces of advanced industrial societies, such as environmentalism and the womens movement.
