Barkan, Cohn Co-Author Article on Organizational Membership

University of Maine Professors of Sociology Steve Barkan and Steve Cohn recently published an entry on member recruitment in The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social and Political Movements. In the entry, Barkan and Cohn discuss the importance of social movements as a basis for participation in democracies, which have achieved major political, social and cultural changes. The influence of social movements depends largely on their ability to recruit members, but what is less obvious is why people choose to participate in them, the authors say.
