En este trabajo se estudian los movimientos sociales que luchan por la justicia social, racial, económica y ambiental en los Estados Unidos. El conocimiento sobre movimientos sociales define al campo como enfocado en los actores colectivos excluidos, que luchan por derechos, recursos y poder (Jenkins, 1985; McAdam, 1999; Piven, 2006; Tarrow, 2011). En este ensayo retomamos este tema originario en la investigación de la acción colectiva, al resaltar las principales formas de exclusión que conducen a la movilización popular a gran escala en Estados Unidos contemporáneo. La exclusión es, con frecuencia,
el punto de partida para la formación del movimiento social, aunque una indagación más específica de las estructuras institucionales que generan divisiones sociales contribuye a nuestra comprensión de la probabilidad de la aparición de resistencia colectiva. En este capítulo realizamos una clasificación más precisa de la exclusión (legal, ambiental,
económica y cultural) y de las respuestas consiguientes de los movimiento sociales.

Inclán, Maria, and Paul D Almeida. 2013. “Indigenous Peoples and Revolutionary Movements in Mesoamerica”. in Oxford Handbook of Indigenous People’s Politics, edited by Jose Antonio Lucero, Dale Turner, and Donna Lee Van Cott. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Publisher's Version Abstract
This chapter analyzes the three largest insurgencies with majority Indigenous participation in Mesoamerica in the twentieth century and the ensuing trajectories of native peoples' movements in these uprisings' aftermath. It reviews the 1932 peasant uprising in El Salvador, the Guatemalan insurgency from the 1970s to the 1990s, and the 1994 Chiapas rebellion in southern Mexico and the subsequent movement it generated. The essay examines why Indigenous peoples engaged at times in radical and revolutionary tactics in collective action efforts to defend their rights, while in the contemporary period we observe less violent and confrontational agendas and strategies. Furthermore, the chapter analyzes political opportunities and various forms of threat (including state repression) so as to understand the divergent framing of Indigenous demands and forms of struggle over time and across cases. The state's actions are a crucial dimension in defining what type of strategies these movements are likely to employ.
