In Challenging Codes Melucci brings an original perspective to research on collective action which both emphasizes the role of culture and makes telling connections with the experience of the individual in postmodern society. The focus is on the role of information in an age which knows both fragmentation and globalisation, building on the analysis of collective action familiar from the author's Nomads of the Present. Melucci addresses a wide range of contemporary issues, including political conflict and change, feminism, ecology, identity politics, power and inequality.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Melucci provides a magisterial presentation of his distinctive approach to the study of contemporary social movement.' Mayer Zald, University of Michigan
'Melucci's new book - his master book - is both the most comprehensive analytical study of social movements and an elaborate analysis of the new generation of collective actions which try to incorporate into private and collective experience the effects of a globalized and rapidly changing social context'. Alain Touraine, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris
"In Challenging Codes Alberto Melucci provides a magisterial presentation of his distinctive approach to the study of contemporary social movements. At once appreciative and critical of prior work, Melucci argues for a hermeneutical approach to collective action that places identity and meaning at center stage. The approach is used to illuminate the contemporary heterogeneity and transformation of contemporary movements." Mayer N. Zaid
