"The second edition of Contentious Politics offers state-of-the-art tools for examining contemporary and historical movements and wider forms of collective action from transnational terrorism to civil wars. The text will be indispensable in social movement-related courses as well as a resource for scholars of resistance movements and historical struggles." -Paul Almeida, University of California-Merced"What do anti-slavery protests in 18th century Great Britain share with the Maidan encampment and its outcome for contemporary conflicts in Ukraine and in Europe as a whole? This must-read volume addresses this question by leading us through the complexity of contentious politics. Much more than just an introduction to a vital field of study, it contributes to it at several levels. Not only does it cover a broad range of popular contention in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas, but it also magisterially highlights the theoretical achievements and potential of the field of contentious politics." -Donatella della Porta, Scuola Normale Superiore and the European University Institute"I would be highly inclined to use the second edition of Contentious Politics as a main textbook for an undergraduate course on contentious politics and social movements. I believe that this updated edition will inspire discussions around the dialogue between theory and empirical cases. Moreover, its up-to-date analysis of major episodes of contention in the past decade will undoubtedly stimulate students to apply the theoretical definitions of contentious politics to real-world cases." -Diana Fu, University of Toronto
