"In this clearly written and highly accessible book, two of the world's leading scholars of social movements offer a theoretically innovative approach to the study of political conflict. ... This is a wonderful teaching tool for courses in social theory, theory construction, political sociology, and social movements." Ron Aminzade, Professor of Sociology, University of Minnesota"An indispensable guide to the study of political science and international relations." Roberto Dominguez, Department of Government, Suffolk UniversityRevolutions, social movements, religious and ethnic conflict, nationalism and civil rights, and transnational movements: these forms of contentious politics combine in Charles Tilly's and Sidney Tarrow's Contentious Politics. The book presents a set of analytical tools and procedures for study, comparison, and explanation of these very different sorts of contention. Drawing on many historical and contemporary cases, the book shows that similar principles describe and explain a wide variety of struggles as well as many more routine forms of politics. Tilly and Tarrow have written the book to introduce readers to an exciting new program of political and sociological analysis.
