    Theda Skocpol and Vanessa Williamson’s collaboration, The Tea Party and the Remaking of Republican Conservatism, and Todd Gitlin’s book, Occupy Nation, examine the formation and workings of two politically dichotomous social movements, the Tea Party Movement and the Occupy Wall Street Movement respectively.
