Abstract

McAdam and Rucht (1993) have recently bemoaned the neglect of diffusion processes in the study of social movements. Clearly there has been work that bears on aspects of diffusion among social movements (Oberschall 1995). But McAdam and Rucht are correct in noting that research and theorization aimed at ferreting out the links among social movements and ‘the dynamics by which they are forged’ (1993: 73) pales in comparison to interest in the emergence of discrete social movements and the factors accounting for constituent participation.
