Sample text

Where the formulation of a neo-Durkheimian model of ritual build-up gives a special analytical advantage is that it provides a mechanism, a process, and a set of causal variables which produce different levels of outcomes. It is not enough to posit, in a very generalized and causally backward-reaching functionalist argument, that if a social movement exists it must have solved the participation incentive problem. The ritual model gives us a forward-oriented causality, showing what conditions (the ingredients listed earlier) give rise to solidarity effects and the other emotional consequences of ritual participation; it thus explains the Social Movements and the Focus of Emotional Attention 31 relative intensities of the movement commitments, and gives the conditions under which they fail to get off the ground in the first place, as well as when they dissipate and crash.

Recruitment and the internal dynamics of movements are the subjects of part 3. A central finding of research on recruitment has been the importance of social networks, as individuals tend to join movements in which they already know one or more participants. The network approach has been criticized for ignoring the cultural symbols and meanings transmitted across the networks, but it also overlooks the affective bonds that help define the network in the first place (Emirbayer and Goodwin 1994; Goodwin 1997).

God symbolizes the emotionally unified group; no wonder that if this emotional unifying process is widely enough focused upon, the sense arises that no power can stand against it, that evil must lose to it in the end. The process of creating and widening a conscience constituency is this process of taking the moral high ground. But the moral suasion is also rooted in collective emotional participation; strength and morality are fused into high levels of collective dedication. God is not only good, but omnipotent.
