The analysis of the book is grounded in the comparative history of states and social movements. A focus on the environmental movement is explained and justified. States are classified into four different types in terms of the kind of interest representation they feature, with major consequences that are elaborated in the chapters that follow. Social movements take form in a context largely shaped by the state, so the story begins with a history of the state and its basic priorities. Core concepts such as the state, social movements, and civil society are explained, and the strategy of inquiry is outlined.
