CHOICE Review

Sociologist Viterna (Harvard) develops a sophisticated, micro-level, political mobilization theory to explain individual variations in social movement participation. Basing her book on rich, in-depth interviews with activists who participated in guerrilla movements in the El Salvadoran civil war, Viterna argues that to explain why some women are recruited into the movement while others are not, it is important to go beyond macro-level political opportunity and meso-level network structure to understand how individuals understand their changing identities as well as their network membership during turbulent times. The author explains clearly how an identity-based mobilization theory helps to clarify which macro- and meso-level factors matter, and how they explain social mobilization outcomes. In addition, she brings insights to understanding whether women's wartime political activism may bring gendered change in society. Viterna argues that in the case of the El Salvadoran civil war, while gender egalitarian ideals are often used to garner women's support during social movements, their articulation may not necessarily challenge traditional gendered ideology to bring about gendered change. Overall, this is an important contribution to the study of gender, violence, and political mobilization. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. M. C.
