Social change can occur slowly and quietly but it is often the result of large numbers of people mobilizing for the purpose of bringing about change. The Push for Social Change series explores how and why social change occurs and what impact major movements have had on people's lives. All books will examine the events mat led to particular social change movements; what those movements did; how and why they did it; and the short-term and long-term impact of those movements. Quotes from people on all sides of these events add insight and interest to the discussion.
