  • Rebellious Conservatives analyzes three movements, the anti-abortion/pro-life movement, the anti-illegal immigration movement, and the Tea Party, to show how perceptions of threats to their privileges drives conservative protest and how these movements seek to reshape America. -- Conservative social movements such as the Tea Party are having a huge impact on American politics and social life. Unlike social movements of the past, these conservative protesters are not oppressed minorities but tend to be relatively privileged population groups. So why are they protesting? Rebellious Conservatives examines three conservative movements, the anti-abortion/pro-life movement, the anti-illegal immigration movement, and the Tea Party, to determine why conservatives engage in protest, how they justify such action, and how they seek to reshape America. Drawing upon aspects of social movement and race theory, the author shows how perceived threats to the privileges of these conservatives drive their protest, how these movements have attempted to reshape American identities to protect these privileges, and the potential implications of the success of these movements. 
  • "Dietrich's accessible study advances understanding of contemporary conservative social movements, providing an indispensable account of why relatively well-off American citizens protest. The voices of conservative activists from the anti-illegal immigration, anti-abortion, and Tea Party movements reverberate throughout Rebellious Conservatives as they seek to restore, preserve, and defend privileges of citizenship, language, education, Christianity, jobs, and fetal rights while simultaneously restricting access to those privileges." - Robert Benford, Professor of Sociology, University of South Florida, USA "Rebellious Conservatives is a rich and insightful analysis of major strands of conservative activism. Focusing on contemporary anti-immigrant, pro-life, and Tea Party movements, Dietrich shows how conservative activists imagine themselves threatened by changes in society and develop srategies to maintain their cultural, social, and economic privileges."- Kenneth Andrews, Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA "Rebellious Conservatives is simply AMAZING! Covering six states in the south and southwest with mixed-methods sampling, the scope and magnitude of the research put into this book is overwhelmingly deep and engaging. Scholars looking for a comprehensive examination of the endurance of contemporary conservative social movements and privilege would do well to pick this book up!" - David G. Embrick, Associate Professor of Sociology, Loyola University-Chicago, USA.
