Major sociological ideas that have been applied to understanding unusual group behavior are explored in this work for undergraduate students in a one-semester course. Ideas are explained using concise terms and simple sentence structures. Discussion of major theories is followed by examples of specific categories of collective behavior and application of theories to recent examples. Chapters are self- contained, with vital information that crosses over boundaries summarized in multiple chapters. The bulk of the book treats collective behavior, while final chapters look at social movements. The author is affiliated with Missouri Southern State College. Annotation c.
