Describes the West German anti-missile movement of the 1980s as an unparalleled citizen mobilization that played a crucial role in closing the door on superpower rivalry. Draws on primary research to examine social movement theory, the political sociology of peace movements, interactions between political parties and movements, and links between public opinion and organized dissent. Also addresses the impact and legacy of the movement. Developed from a doctoral dissertation, probably for the University of California, but no date is provided.
