Rudolf Heberle perceives social movements as a "collectivity" having a group identity and a set of constitutive ideas. Social movements attempt to bring about fundamental changes in the social order especially in property and labor relations. In sum, social movements derive from institutional inadequacies in a given society. As those uninstitutionalized needs are manifest in the lives of individuals, organizations may form to challenge the powers that be. This is the genesis of a social movement. Movements differ in their degree of formal organization, the extent of social change desired, the degree of change in personal life-style required as well as ideological flexibility. - Rudolph Heberle, Social Movements: An Introduction to Political Sociology (New York: Appleton-Century-Crofts, 1951).
