Arthur Kornhauser applied this theory to social movements in his book The Politics of Mass Society. The classical approaches were not able to explain this increase in social movements. American Journal of Sociology. He stated that in a mass society, anomie and egoism cause small local groups and networks to decline.

Edwards, Bob; John D. McCarthy (2004).

Praxis and Politics explores the knowledge arising from activist praxis and its significance for reimagining radical and democratic politics.
