Contentious Politics (Paradigm, 2006). The authors examine different forms of contentious politics: revolutions, social movements, religious and ethnic conflict, nationalisms and civil right, and transnational movements. These present a set of tools and procedures for studying, comparing, and explaining forms of contentions. Based on 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. Beyond its historical value, the book provides an exciting new method for political and sociological analysis.
