The World Says No to War studies the rally against the invasion of Iraq in 2003 to understand who spoke out, why they did, and how so many people were mobilized for a global demonstration. The contributors analyze how the new tools of the Internet were combined with conventional means of mobilization to rally millions around common goals and against common targets.
“Stefaan Walgrave and Dieter Rucht answer a number of questions about how social, political, and movement mobilization contexts interact with national ideological support for the goals of a protest demonstration. This study is unique and innovative.” — John D. McCarthy, Penn State University
